Noncompliance: These seats do not meet the chest acceleration requirements of FMVSS No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems." Improper placement of the shoulder belt portion of the vehicle's built-in safety harness system can result in excessive forces on the chest of the booster seat occupant, increasing the risk of personal injury.
Remedy: A revised instructional booklet will be provided to owners of these booster seats. Owner notification began during October 1998. Owners who do not receive the free instruction booklet within a reasonable time should contact Basic Comfort at 1-800-456-8687.
