Evenflo Recalls Booster Seats Due to Harness Loosening
About the Evenflo Booster Seat Recall
According to Evenflo, the voluntary recall is due to the ease of which children can affect the tightness of the safety harness. A button controls the looseness or tightness of the harness, and children in the seat have access to the button and, without the knowledge of the caregiver, can loosen the harness on their own.
Consumers and owners of the recalled booster seats can expect a notice from Evenflo if they registered the booster seat, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Evenflo will provide a replacement harness adjustment button assembly and instructions free of charge if contacted. Consumers are advised not to return the child seat to retailers.
No injuries have been reported in regards to the recalled booster seats. The recall is expected to start on September 26.
