Turnabout Infant Child Restraints and  Explorer Mate All-Terrain Stroller/Turnabout Car Seat Recalled by Cosco

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain Turnabout Infant Child Restraints and  Explorer Mate All-Terrain Stroller/Turnabout Car Seat with Base, manufactured between January 5 through January 17, 2000, because these child seats utilize a three-point harness system, however, a Turnabout five-point pad was included with these models.

The combination of the three point harness with a five-point pad causes the buckle release button to be located under the cover making the buckle not readily accessible.

The model numbers of the affected child restraints are - 02-758 TCD and 02-758 BBP.

Cosco will provide the owners with a free three-point cover and installation instructions.  Owners who do not receive the free cover should contact Cosco at 1-800-221-6736.
