The affected seats were manufactured between December 2011 and May 2013.
The Problem: The seat’s harness buckle could become difficult to unlatch due to prolonged exposure to food and drink spills. If the buckle becomes stuck, it could be challenging to quickly remove the child from the seat in the event of a crash or other emergency.
The Fix: Evenflo will notify registered owners and send a newly designed buckle and instructions for installing the replacement buckle.
What Owners Should Do: Evenflo began notifying owners earlier this week. Owners can contact Evenflo at 800-490-7591,
