Evenflo On My Way® Position Right™ Infant Car Seats Recalled

Evenflo On My Way Position Right Infant Car Seats RecalledWashington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - Evenflo Company Inc. has today announced the recall of certain Evenflo On My Way® Position Right™ infant car seats, manufactured before February 10, 2000, because, after repeated use, two alignment posts in the base can become bent.

If the posts become bent, consumers may have difficulty installing the carrier onto the base. Bent posts could also interfere with proper latching of the carrier to the base, preventing the child from being properly restrained.

The recall affects the "Convenience Base" of the seat only. Model numbers of the affected seats begin with 200 and 211; or 447 and 499 when sold with a stroller; and 639 on the bases that were sold separately.

The bases have the words "Position Right" on them and also have a large, red knob used for adjusting the angle of the base when installed in the vehicle.

These bases may have been sold individually, together with an On My Way® Position Right™ car seat, or in an Easy Comfort Premier™ or Trendsetter Advantage™ travel system (with a car seat and matching stroller). Position Right™ bases manufactured after February 10, 2000 have already been revised by Evenflo, and do not require the kit.

Evenflo will provide a free repair kit that prevents the posts in the base from bending. The kit includes instructions and metal clips that slip over the alignment posts. The clips are easy to install and it only takes a few minutes.

Consumers that may have the affected seats should call Evenflo at 1-800-316-4779 or visit the Evenflo website to receive a free repair kit.
