    Recalled: Evenflo Infant Car Seat

    If you have the following car seat, click through to the Safercar.gov press release for more information:

    Evenflo is recalling certain Embrace 35 two-piece, rear-facing infant child restraints equipped with an AmSafe QT1 buckle. Over time, use of the seat can make the harness buckle difficult to unlatch.

    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.

    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 is expected to begin on, or about, October 22, 2014. Owners may contact Evenflo’s toll-free number at 1-800-490-7591, or visit their website at www.embracebuckle.evenflo.com.

    I highly recommend signing up for recall notifications from the NHTSA here.
