Recall Alert! Baby Trend Pulls Nearly 17,000 Car Seats

Apr 15 2014 - 4:19pm

Well, it looks like the recent wave of car seat recalls isn't over quite yet. Today, Baby Trend Inc. announced it is voluntarily recalling almost 17,000 car seats [1] due to "difficulty in unlatching the harness buckle," the same problem that has already seen Graco and Evenflo recall 5.5 million car seats this year [2].

The Baby Trend recall affects the TrendZ Fastback 3-in-1 seats — models FB60070 (Granite) and FB60408 (Jellybean). The seats were manufactured between October 2011 and July 2013 and used the same AMSAFE buckles as Graco [3] and Evenflo [4]. Owners of the recalled products can call Baby Trend at 1-800-328-7363 or visit the company's website [5] to receive replacement restraints when they become available.
