Evenflo is recalling nearly 30,000 combination booster seats because children can loosen the harness without an adult's knowledge.
The recall covers certain Evolve 3-in-1 seats. Government documents say that if the harness is loose, it could increase the risk of injury in a crash.
Evenflo says there have been no reports of injuries, but the company has received 27 complaints that children have been able to loosen the harnesses.
The recall involves Evolve Booster Seats that were made before Feb. 9 with the following model numbers:
- 34411700 (US)
- 34411741 (US)
- 34411700C (Canada)
Evenflo said that if your child can use the seat in stage two or three, the seat can be used safely until the remedy kit is installed. But if a child can reach and push the adjustment button in harness mode, located at the bottom middle of the seat, the car seat should not be used until the kit is received and installed
