Evenflo recalls over 56,000 car seats for increased injury risk

When you use a car seat for your child, you expect that it will keep your child safe in the event of an accident. One car seat manufacturer, Evenflo, has found a problem with its Transitions car seat that could increase a child's risk of injury when it is used in the forward facing harnessed booster mode.

The voluntary recall by Evenflo affects 56,000 of the Transitions 3-in-1 car seats. The company received feedback from customers that the piece that loosened the harness or the Central Front Adjuster can be reached by a child who is in the seat. This means that the child could conceivably loosen the straps when the car is moving. While no injuries have been reported, Evenflo is offering a replacement part and instructions on installing it to car seat owners. This repair kit is offered at no charge to those who own the seat. Evenflo said the kit will "virtually eliminate a child's access and activation of the CFA."

There are three models affected and all were manufactured before Jan. 26, 2016: 34411686, 34411695 and 34411029. The model number can be found on the bottom or back of the seat.

When someone is injured by a product that was used as intended, he or she has a right to seek compensation. Attorneys who have experience in product liability cases can help you understand what is needed for a successful case. It's important for you to seek medical care if you are injured or made ill, take photos if applicable and keep a log of what happened. This can help your Waco attorney build a stronger case.
