Recall Issued for Diono Car Seats

Diono is issuing a recall for certain models of their car seats. Models of Radian, Olympia, Pacifica and Rainier manufactured between November 2013 and September 2017 may be affected by this recall. If the car seat is installed forward-facing and secured using only a lap belt and not the top tether, it may not prevent injury to the child in a crash.
