Massachusetts Child Safety Attorney Notes Child Safety Seat Recall

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that Dorel Juvenile Group is recalling almost 800,000 child safety seats because the locking mechanism is prone to malfunction. Boston child injury lawyer Neil Burns noted that consumers can click here to see if their model is affected. The NHTSA said the solution is simple – Dorel will provide a safe lubricant to prevent sticking, resolving the problem.

According to NHSTA, you can continue to use the child restraint seats before applying the lubricant, however, you need to be sure that the harness is adjusted properly and the lock and release button is fully in the locked position.
Dorel’s phone number is 1 -866-623-3139 and their email address is harnessadjustment@djgusa.com for those with concerns and questions.
