Car Seats Affected: Approximately 30,000 versions of the Evenflo Evolve combination booster seat; only the following versions are affected: model No. 34411700 manufactured Feb. 26, 2015, to Feb. 9, 2016, and model No. 34411741 manufactured May 27, 2015, to Feb. 9, 2016. The recall only affects seats used in harness mode and does not affect seats used with a seat belt.

The Problem: A child may be able to access the button for adjusting the harness tightness and loosen it. An improperly restrained child increases the risk of injury in a crash. Evenflo is not aware of any injuries related to this issue, but received complaints regarding the harness from caregivers.

"If your child is accessing the harness adjustment button in harnessed mode, then the seat should not be used until you install the remedy kit," Evenflo said in a statement.

The Fix: Evenflo will provide owners with a free remedy kit that includes a replacement button for free.

What Owners Should Do: The manufacturer will start notifying affected owners Monday. Owners can call Evenflo's recall hotline at 800-233-5921, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or click here for more information from the manufacturer.
