Recalled for CHILD SEAT: HARNESS
Description THESE DOREL JUVENILE GROUP (DJG) CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS, MANUFACTURED FROM MARCH 15 TO AUGUST 1, 2002 WITH 6 PANEL WELLINGTON WEBBING HARNESSES, FAIL TO CONFORM TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 213, "CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS." THE UV STABILIZER USED IN THE WEBBING MAY NOT ADEQUATELY PROTECT IT FROM DETERIORATION BY ULTRAVIOLET RAYS.
Consequences IF THE WEBBING IS EXPOSED TO SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF SUNLIGHT, IT COULD DEGRADE. IF THE WEBBING STRENGTH DEGRADES MORE THAN ALLOWED BY THE STANDARD IT MAY NOT PROVIDE SUFFICIENT PROTECTION TO A CHILD IN A CRASH, CAUSING AN INCREASED RISK OF INJURY TO THE CHILD.
Corrective action DJG'S PETITION FOR RELIEF FROM REMEDY BASED ON ITS BELIEF THAT THE NONCOMPLIANCE WAS INCONSEQUENTIAL TO MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY WAS DENIED BY NHTSA ON JANUARY 5, 2010. ACCORDINGLY, DJG WILL CONDUCT A SAFETY RECALL CAMPAIGN. IT WILL NOTIFY REGISTERED OWNERS AND PROVIDE FREE REPLACEMENT KITS FOR THE HARNESSES ALONG WITH REPAIR INSTRUCTIONS. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON FEBRUARY 16, 2010. OWNERS MAY CALL DJG TOLL-FREE AT 1-866-690-2539.
Notes OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .
