Vandalia, Ohio Justice News Flash – (Press Release) — When you buckle your child into their car seat, you are trusting that the seat will uphold, should a crash occur. The purchase of the product states that you support the company and believe they have created a safe product for your family. Recently, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrations is advising parents who purchased model numbers 390, 391, 534 and 552 during April 2005 and January 29, 2008 to refrain from using the seats.
During testing conducted by the NHTSA and Evenflo, it was discovered that the seats could possible detach from the base. Evenflo has reported 160 child injuries including a skull fracture, two concussions, cuts, scrapes and bruises and more than 500 injuries to infants have arisen since 1998 on recalled car seat models. Consumers are urged to request a free supplemental dual-hook fastener to guarantee the seat does not separate from the base.
