Dorel Juvenile Group Child Safety Seat Recall

Photo of Randy Sorrels

Dorel Juvenile Group is recalling 794,247 child safety seats because the harness locking and release button does not always return to its locked position. If this occurs, the harness adjustment strap can slip back through the adjuster as a child moves around in the seat. This can result in a loosened harness and increase the risk of the child being injured in a vehicle crash.

The recall involves the restraint systems manufactured from May 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009 which have a "Center Front Adjuster" for the harness, and include infant, convertible, and booster child restraint systems. These were sold both as stand-alone seats and part of a travel system (along with a stroller). Dorel has indicated that it intends to provide a remedy kit consisting of a small tube of non-toxic, food-grade lubricant that will be applied to the Center Front Adjuster to prevent sticking and allow it to properly engage the strap.

If you have more questions about this product or this recall, you can contact the manufacturer directly at 1-866-623-3139.

If you or someone you know has been harmed by a recalled vehicle, contact the attorneys at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend by calling 713-222-7211 or 1-800-870-9584.
