Evenflo Recalls Over 56,000 Child Booster Car Seats Due to Design Defect
Evenflo will recall approximately 56,247 Transitions 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seats due to a design defect involving the central front adjuster button. The central front adjuster (CFA) controls the seat’s internal harness to loosen the restrains on the child. It was discovered recently that the position of the CFA is in reach for the child to activate the CFA and subsequently loosen the harness that is restraining the occupant. If the internal harness is not tightened snugly around the child, this increases the risk of injury for the child in the event of a crash.

The model numbers affected in this recall include 34411686, 34411695, and 34411029. These car seats were manufactured from December 18, 2014 through January 29, 2016.
Evenflo will notify owners and provide a remedy kit that includes a replacement seat pad and CFA assembly, free of charge. This will eliminate a child’s access to activate the CFA button. The recall is expected to begin during February 2016. Owners may contact Evenflo at www.transitions.evenflo.com or 1-800-233-5921. Note: This safety issue only affects the use of the seat in the forward-facing harnessed booster (22-65 lbs. and 28-50 in.) configuration.
Recently, Britax recalled 49,000 B-Ready strollers and replacement top seats due to an arm bar defect.
Americans rely on manufacturers to provide a safe well-designed product. Sadly, that is not often the case. The Auto Defect Attorneys at The Brandi Law Firm have successfully represented many people injured from defective autos such as Toyotas, Fords, Chryslers, Hondas, GM, and their component parts. Additionally, we have successfully represented people injured by defective helmets, bicycles, motorcycles, fuel pumps, brakes, car seats, seat belts, air bags, table saws, pumps, industrial machinery used in the workplace, barbeques, heating systems, and numerous other household and industrial products.
Often times, people involved in accidents do not examine the issues of defective product design, the risks inherent in the design, feasible alternatives, and appropriate warnings. In a car accident, we examine whether the car was truly crashworthy – does it contain the appropriate crash protection. In accidents where someone strikes a guardrail, people often do not consider the guardrail may be unsafe, installed improperly, or whether there is a contributing factor in the roadway design leading to a dangerous condition. We have represented a number of people seriously injured in these types of accidents involving dangerous conditions of roads and crashworthy vehicles. If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto crash, our attorneys at The Brandi Law Firm are available to consult with you. Please contact our office at 800-481-1615 or email us.
