Safeline Kids Has Recalled Sit-N-Stroll
- 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.
