February 26, 2016

Evenflo has announced a recall for car seats due to a defective harness.

The company is recalling about 56,000 Transitions 3-in-1 combination booster seats. The central front adjuster (CFA) button that is used to loosen the seat's internal harness may be within the child's reach, allowing the child to adjust the straps.

If the internal harness is not tightened snugly, the child will be at an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

The recall affects only model numbers 34411686, 34411695, and 34411029.

This safety issue only impacts the use of the seat in the forward-facing configuration.

The company will notify owners and provide a remedy kit that includes a newly-designed seat pad and CFA assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during February 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Evenflo at (800) 233-5921.
