Safeline Kids Has Recalled Sit?n?Stroll child restraint

Safeline Kids, Inc. is performing a voluntary informational recall of approximately 10,495 units of the Sit?n?Stroll child restraint, model #2003, manufactured between September 1, 2002 and October 21, 2003, for the following reason. When the Sit?n?Stroll model #2003 is secured in the vehicle using the lower forward-facing belt path (previously recommended for children who weigh between 20 and 28 pounds and are less than 33 inches tall) or when the shoulder and buckle pads included with the restraint are used, forces during a crash could cause the child?s head to move forward further than allowed by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213. Shoulder and buckle pads may interfere with the ability to adequately snug the harness around the child.

No reports of incidents or injuries have been received. Owners are asked to discontinue using and discard the shoulder and buckle pads provided with the Sit?n?Stroll model #2003. Owners are also instructed to ensure that only the upper forward-facing belt path is used when the Sit?n?Stroll is secured forward-facing in the vehicle with children who weigh between 20 and 40 pounds.

A replacement label and revised instruction manual will be sent to all affected owners who returned a registration card to Safeline Kids, Inc. The revised labels and instruction manuals have a revision date of 10/03. The new label and manual will automatically be sent to the owners within the next two weeks.

Parents should continue to use this product, but must remove and discard the shoulder and buckle pads and use only the upper forward-facing belt path. If you have any questions regarding this informational recall, please contact Safeline Kids toll free at 800-829-1625 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. MST Monday through Thursday or between 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. MST Friday, email the Company at service@safelinekids.com or write to 14881 S. Concord Park Drive, Suite 2, Bluffdale, UT 84065, USA. Upon request, replacement labels and instruction manuals will also be available for retailers, child passenger safety organizations, child passenger safety technicians and other interested parties.
