Synopsis:

Evenflo Company, Inc. (Evenflo) is recalling certain Transitions 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seats, model numbers 34411686, 34411695, and 34411029, produced from December 18, 2014, through January 29, 2016. The central front adjuster (CFA) button that is used to loosen the seat’s internal harness may be within the child’s reach, allowing the child to activate the CFA and loosen the internal harness. If the internal harness is not tightened snugly around the child, the child would be at an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash. Evenflo will notify owners and provide a remedy kit that includes a newly-designed seat pad and CFA assembly, free of charge. 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 impacts the use of the seat in the forward-facing harnessed booster (22-65 lbs. and 28-50 in.) configuration.
