Models Affected: Approximately 56,000 Evenflo Transitions 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seats with the following model numbers: 34411686, 34411695, and 34411029. Only models produced from Dec. 18, 2014, through Jan. 29, 2016, are affected. Parents can find the model number on a label on the bottom of the child seat.
The Problem: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is reporting that the adjuster button used to loosen the seat’s harness may be within the child’s reach, allowing the child to loosen harness. If the harness is not properly tightened, the child will not be properly restrained in a crash. According to NHTSA, this issue only impacts the use of the seat in harnessed-booster mode. In a statement, Evenflo said no injuries have been reported related to this issue.
