Evenflo is aware of defective products, issues recall

There are people all over the country, including our Texas readers, who have at least one child seat in their vehicle. Those using child safety seats believe the seats are safe for their children. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

Evenflo Company Inc. is one of the largest names in the industry; however, the company has recently issued a recall for approximately 1.3 million safety seat buckles. This recall was issued because it could be difficult to quickly undo the buckle in the event of an emergency.

According to the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration, the recall includes buckles used to manufacture a variety of models made between 2011 and 2014. While not all seats made during that time are part of the recall, the models included are some of the company's Momentum, Chase, Maestro, Symphony, Snugli, Titan, SureRide and SecureKid models.

These defective products can pose a risk, since the buckle could become stuck in place, subsequently making it a challenge to remove the child from the seat in a hurry. The company plans on alerting all registered owners this month. They will also provide these people with a replacement buckle, as well as instructions on how to make the change.

Those who purchase a car seat for their child are expecting to get a product that is 100 percent safe and reliable at all times. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, both with car seats as well as a variety of other items. In this case, the Evenflo Company Inc. is aware of the problem and is taking the steps necessary to ensure the child seats are safe. Products, though, that cause injuries or death to consumers leave a company open to liability through a civil action.
