The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's
Child Seat Recall Campaign Listing

November 2009 through November 14, 2019

This list does not contain recalls that are more than 10 years old.
(Earlier recalls may be viewed by using the options available on the Child Seat Recalls Search page.)

Manufacturers of newer child seats provide “expiration” dates for their seats that typically range from six to eight years from the date it was manufactured. 

Expiration dates are a way for manufacturers to provide consumers with guidance as to the expected “useful” life of their car seat.

To verify the age and expiration date look for the date of manufacture and the expiration date on the child seat or contact the child seat manufacturer for more detailed information.

The most recent recall was published on November 6, 2019.

This listing is managed by the Recall Management Division, Office of Defects Investigation Enforcement, and updated whenever the agency publishes a child seat recall, or when new information is added to a recall record.

Child Seat Manufacturers

Baby Trend, Inc.

Make: EVENFLO

Models: EVOLVE 3-IN-1 SEAT

Production Dates: -

Defect: Evenflo Company, Inc. (Evenflo) is recalling certain Evolve 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seats, model number 34411700 manufactured February 26, 2015, to February 9, 2016 and model number 34411741 manufactured May 27, 2015, to February 9, 2016. The affected seats have a button for adjusting the harness tightness. The child in the seat can access this button and loosen the harness without the caregiver's knowledge.

Consequence: If the child is able to loosen the harness, they may not be properly secured in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury.

Corrective Action: Evenflo will notify the registered owners, and will provide a remedy kit with a replacement harness adjustment button, free of charge. The recall began on September 28, 2016. Owners may contact Evenflo at www.evolve.evenflo.com or 1-800-233-5921.

Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

NHTSA No.: 16C007000


Make: EVENFLO

Models: TRANSITIONS BOOSTER SEAT

Production Dates: December 18, 2014 - January 29, 2016

Defect: 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.

Consequence: 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.

Corrective Action: Evenflo will notify owners and provide a remedy kit that includes a newly-designed seat pad and CFA assembly, free of charge. Owners may contact Evenflo at www.transitions.evenflo.com or 1-800-233-5921. The recall began on March 14, 2016.

NHTSA No.: 16C003000 [EVENFLO Safety Recall No.: Transitions CFA]


Make: EVENFLO

Models: EMBRACE 35

Production Dates: -

Defect: Evenflo Company, Inc. (Evenflo) is recalling certain Embrace 35 two-piece, rear-facing infant child restraints equipped with an AmSafe QT1 buckle. The affected model numbers include: 30711365 (Snugli brand), 31511040, 31511323, 31511400, 3151198, 3151953, 31521138, 46811205 (or 24502447), 46811237 (or 24502446), 48111200, 48111215, 48111215A, 48111218, 48111234, 48111235, 48111235A, 48111462, 48411391 (or 24502786), 48411391D (or 24502787), 48411392 (or 24502830), 48411504 (or 24507546), 48411504D (or 24507544), 52911307A, 52921040, 55311138 (or 24505003), 55311238 (or 24505000), and 55311292 (or 24505001) and were manufactured at various times from December 2011 through May 2013. Over time, use of the seat can make the harness buckle difficult to unlatch.

Consequence: A buckle that does not release easily, or possibly at all, may make it difficult to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a vehicle crash, fire, or other emergency, in which a prompt exit from the vehicle is required.

Corrective Action: Evenflo will notify registered owners and provide a remedy kit, including a replacement buckle and instructions for easy consumer removal of the AmSafe buckle and installation of the newly-designed replacement buckle. The recall began on November 3, 2014. Owners may contact Evenflo's toll-free number at 1-800-490-7591, or visit their website at www.embracebuckle.evenflo.com.

Notes: Evenflo is conducting a separate customer awareness campaign to address Evenflo Embrace 35 models equipped with an AmSafe QT3 buckle, and that are not subject to this safety recall. Evenflo will, upon customer request, provide a replacement buckle and instructions for installation. Owners should contact Evenflo at the number above for further information. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Make: EVENFLO

Models: CHASE, MAESTRO, MAESTRO PERFORMANCE, MOMENTUM 65, SECURE KID, SNUGLI ALL-IN-ONE, SNUGLI BOOSTER, SURERIDE DLX, SYMPHONY, TITAN 65

Production Dates: -

Defect: Evenflo Company, Inc. (Evenflo) is recalling certain convertible and harnessed child restraints, models Momentum 65 (including LX and DLX), Chase (including LX, DLX, and Select), Maestro (including Performance), Symphony (including 65, LX, 65 E3, and DLX), Snugli All-In-One, Snugli Booster, Titan 65, SureRide DLX, and Secure Kid (including LX, DLX, 100, 300, and 400). The affected seats have model number prefixes of 306, 308, 310, 329, 345, 346, 371 or 385. The defect involves difficulty in unlatching the harness buckle. In the convertible car seats and harnessed booster seats, the buckle may become stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle's release button.

Consequence: It may be difficult to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an emergency in which a prompt exit from the vehicle is required.

Corrective Action: Evenflo notified registered owners in April 2014. The company will start providing replacement buckles along with installation instructions in April 2014. Owners may contact Evenflo at 1-800-490-7591 or online at www.buckle.evenflo.com.

Models: BIG KID

Production Dates: -

Noncompliance: Certain Evenflo Big Kid Factory Select booster seats, Model Nos. 30911173AD, 3091967AD, 30911118AD, and 30911120D, shipped between August 6, 2012, and September 18, 2012, fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems." The subject seats were originally manufactured solely for purposes of retail display and not to be sold at retail. Therefore, the seats were packaged without the instruction manual or the required registration card. However, the seats were inadvertently shipped to Evenflo's institutional customers (i.e. hospitals, government agencies) to be given to families. None of the affected units were sold at retail stores.

Consequence: Without the instruction manual the seat may be used improperly. Should the owner not file a registration with the child seat manufacturer due to lack of information on how to do so, they may not be notified of a safety recall. Either condition puts the child at an increased risk of possible injury in the event of a crash.

Corrective Action: The affected seats have a label stating: "DISPLAY ONLY NOT INTENDED FOR SALE," located on the back of the booster seat headrest. Evenflo will mail owners who have received an affected Big Kid booster seat a remedy kit that includes a consumer registration card, an instruction manual, and an overlabel to cover the current label stating: "DISPLAY ONLY NOT INTENDED FOR SALE." The remedy kit will be provided free of charge. Notification began on October 10, 2012. Owners may contact Evenflo at 1-800-233-5921 or at safety.evenflo.com..

Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

NHTSA No.: 12C003000


Make: EVENFLO

Models: 310 (MAESTRO)

Production Dates: November 24, 2009 - April 10, 2010

Noncompliance: EVENFLO IS RECALLING CERTAIN MAESTRO CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS WITH MODEL NUMBERS BEGINNING WITH 310 AND BUILT FROM NOVEMBER 24, 2009, THROUGH APRIL 9, 2010. THESE SEATS FAIL TO CONFORM TO THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 213, "CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS."

Consequence: IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, A CRACK MAY FORM AT THE FRONT OF THE SEAT ADJACENT TO THE HARNESS ADJUSTER CAUSING THE CHILD NOT TO BE ADEQUATELY RESTRAINED, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY.

Corrective Action: EVENFLO WILL PROVIDE OWNERS AND CARE GIVERS A REINFORCEMENT PLATE ALONG WITH REPAIR INSTRUCTIONS FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON OCTOBER 15, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT EVENFLO TOLL-FREE AT 1-800-233-5921.
