Dorel Car Seat Recall

Dorel Juvenile Group USA announces a voluntary recall involving Cosco® Alpha Omega®, Cosco Alpha Omega Elite®, Eddie Bauer® 3-in-1 car seats, Eddie Bauer® 3 in 1 Deluxe and Safety 1st® Alpha Omega Elite car seats.

After monitoring consumer contact they determined that under certain conditions the harness adjustment strap may slip. This may allow the harness securing the child in the restraint system to loosen.

While the occurrence of the harness loosening is extremely rare, if it were to occur in the event of a crash the child may move forward. This may increase the risk of injury. No injuries have been reported as a result.

Dorel Juvenile Group will provide consumers with a kit enabling them to fix the problem by simply replacing the adjuster strap. The kit containing the replacement strap and illustrated instructions is available for distribution. All owners of these restraints who returned a registration card should receive a notification regarding this recall. The affected seats should not be returned to the retailer.For a complete list of car seats affected go to the following link.
