Child Seat Recall 2013: Safety 1st, Eddie Bauer Safety Seats Recalled By Dorel Juvenile Group For Installation Markings [FULL LIST]

  on

Parents, you may want to double-check your child’s car seat. The Dorel Juvenile Group issued a voluntary, precautionary recall for a series of the Safety 1st and Eddie Bauer safety seats Thursday.

A statement released by the North American-based company stated that 21 versions of three different models of their child safety seats are being recalled after the discovery of incorrect installation guidelines. “A color-coordinated ease of use label depicting the rear-facing mode instruction was positioned on the incorrect side of the base. The arrows on this label point toward the forward-facing belt path instead of the rear-facing belt path, which could potentially cause confusion to the consumer,” said the release, confirming the mistake does not comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.

According to the press release, only products manufactured between July 20, 2010, and May 18, 2011, are included in the recall. Despite issuing the release, the company claims that no complaints, incidents or related injuries occurred as a result of the recalled merchandise, adding that the recall was prompted by a comment from “an invested party.”

“Any recall is unfortunate, particularly those affecting children’s products,” said Safety 1st on its official Facebook page Thursday. “Dorel Juvenile will continue to work every day to earn the trust of parents and caregivers and provide products that are of the highest quality, design and value.”

Customers can contact the Dorel Juvenile Group for a repair kit by calling 1-877-675-2355 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST or emailing customer service at rfbaselabel@djgusa.com. Parents are advised that continuing to use the child safety restraints is fine if the seats are installed using the instruction manual’s installation guidelines.
