Evenflo has announced they are recalling some of their Embrace 35 infant car seat models for buckle problems. Over time the buckles may become stiff and difficult to release, and some buckles may eventually stop working altogether. Evenflo requests that consumers contact them for a remedy kit that will come with a new harness & buckle along with instructions on how to replace them in the car seat.
