Sears Canada has issued a warning to customers who have bought cars seats that fall under some of the most popular name brands distributed by Dorel Distribution Canada, including Cosco, Safety 1st, Eddie Bauer, and Maxi-Cosi branded child restraints.
In a company statement released there is a chance the harness adjustment strap could loosen during use, meaning a child may not be fully protected in a motor vehicle collision.
There have been no reported injuries associated with this in Canada.
Sears says customers should not return their travel system, but should visit the Dorel Juvenile group website at www.djgusa.com to get a free repair kit.
Some of the affected restraints were sold at Sears Canada retail stores, online and through the Sears Canada catalog.
The car seats and travel systems were manufactured between May 1, 2008 and April 30, 2009.
