Car Seat Recall In Canada ~ 26,558 Safety 1st and Eddie Bauer Car Seats
If you live in Canada, read on! It was reported that certain car seats manufactured by Dorel may not comply with Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) 213 – Child Restraint Systems. After testing the seats, it was noted that the plastic seat shell cracked, which could allow the seat back to recline excessively and increase the risk of injury from impact forces being transferred to the child during a crash.
The crack tends to expose sharp edges, especially in the case of the Enspira 65 model and thus increases the risk of injury to your child. Transport Canada and Dorel Distribution Canada have actively investigated the non-compliance. The company will notify all registered users with an Owner Notification Letter, with instructions on how to obtain a free shell repair kit. It is very important to note that if you have not registered your car seat, you should contact Dorel immediately at http://recall.djgusa.com/services/productrecall/canadarecalls.html to verify if your model is included in this recall. If their model is included, the consumer should call Dorel’s dedicated Toll free Customer Service Hotline at 1-(877)-416-9335, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST or email email@example.com or Fax 1-800-207-8182 to obtain their free shell repair kit.
