Evenflo has issued a voluntary recall on certain models of their harnessed car seats. The crotch buckle on the harness can get stuck in the latched position so that the harness cannot be released. Evenflo has determined that over time the buckles can get food or other particles inside them which can cause them to stick.
If the crotch buckle on your child’s car seat is not showing signs of sticking Evenflo says there is no need to stop using them to transport your child safely.
