Recalled for CHILD SEAT:HARNESS BUCKLE
Description Kiddy USA (Kiddy) is recalling certain World Plus combination forward facing child restraints that convert to a high back booster seat, model 51 100 WP, manufactured from July 2, 2012, through October 5, 2013. The buckle/tongue on the affected booster seats may only partially engage. As a result, the consumer may have a false impression that the buckle is fully latched when it is not. As such, these seats fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 213, "Child Restraint Systems."
Consequences A partially engaged buckle will not adequately restrain the child in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Corrective action Kiddy will notify registered owners and will reimburse owners the full purchase price of the car seat plus packaging costs. The recall began on June 15, 2016. Owners may contact Kiddy customer service at 1-855-92KIDDY (1-855-925-4339).
Notes Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
