Child-safety-seat manufacturer Dorel Juvenile Group is recalling 1,737 Comfy Carry and OnBoard35 infant-safety seats because they were sold without the car seat base and did not contain lower anchor (LATCH) attachments.
The car seat base contains the required Latch attachment assembly. Without lower anchor attachments, these infant-safety seats fail to meet federal safety standard requirements and MAY be difficult to properly install in a vehicle, increasing the risk of injury or death to the child.
This recall applies to carriers sold or distributed without the base. If you are the owner one of these carriers that did not include a base, you will use the vehicle seat belt to install your carrier, this also applies to owners who have a base and would like to install the carrier without the base.
The affected models are:
- Comfy Carry: IC123FSM
- OnBoard 35: IC124FSM
Dorel will notify registered owners of the recall and provide bases at no cost. Parents and caregivers who haven’t registered their infant seats should call Dorel at 877-416-8111. Affected owners also can call NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236.
