Safeline Kids Has Recalled Sit-N-Stroll
 

(SafetyAlerts) - Safeline Kids, Inc. has recalled about 3,522 Sit-N-Stroll 2240.

Number Involved: 3,522

Dates of Manufacture: April ? October 2001

Noncompliance: Certain rear-facing and forward-facing convertible child restraint seats fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems." The FAA certification statement, "This restraint is Certified for use in Motor Vehicles and Aircraft," is in yellow lettering instead of the required red lettering. This noncompliance could lead flight attendants to refuse to allow a parent/guardian to bring or use this product on an airplane, which could create a safety risk to the child.

Remedy: Safeline Kids will send corrected labels to the known owners to be placed over the existing labels free of charge. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during February 2002. Owners should contact Safeline Kids at 1-800-829-1625.

[NHTSA Recall No. 02E002].
