1 Million EvenFlo Infant Car Seats Recalled
Evenflo is recalling 1 million car safety seats because of a “serious risk of injury or death” in a collision, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety administration (NHTSA).
The models covered by the recall are the 390, 391, 534, and 552 Discovery car seat and travel system manufactured from April 2005 through January 2008.
Recent tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Evenflo indicate the car seat could break apart and separate from the base during high impact side collisions.
Evenflo plans to notify registered owners of the seats and provide a free “supplemental dual-hook fastener to ensure that the car seat remains attached to its base in a high impact collision.”
The recall is scheduled to begin in February. Owners should call Evenflo at 1.800.356.2229 or order the fastener online at www.evenflow.com/discovery.
Consumers can also contact NHTSA at 1.888.327.4236 (TTY 1.800.424.9153) or go to www.safercar.gov
