Fiddle Diddles has issued a recall of approximately 250 LullaBelay adjustable car seat strap systems which use carabiners to hang a car seat from a shopping cart. The carabiners attached to the strap system contain small internal parts that can become dislodged, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The strap system includes two fabric straps, carabiner hardware, a mesh car seat cover, and a tote bag. The model number is printed on the gray straps. In addition to the product bearing the model number LB1001, Fiddle Diddles is also printed on a fabric label attached to the mesh car seat cover, tote bag, and fabric straps.

The recalled adjustable car seat strap system was sold online from May 2015 through June 2015, and at Zoolikins stores in Arizona from November 2015 through June 2016 for about $40.

To date, no injuries or incidents involving the recalled product have been reported.

Owners should immediately stop using the LullaBelay strap system and contact Fiddle Diddles for a free repair kit with three new carabiners. In addition, the company is contacting all known purchasers directly.

Consumers with any additional questions or concerns about this recall can contact Fiddle Diddles toll-free at (888) 741-2957.
