    4moms Self Installing Rear-facing Infant Car Seats recalled

    The infant carrier portion may not attach to the seat base securely

    4moms is recalling 1,622 4moms Self Installing Rear-facing Infant Car Seats, model number 1032, manufactured July 1, 2016, to October 31, 2016.

    Due to a tight rivet, the affected car seats have a coupling hook that may not properly engage around the coupling pin, preventing the infant carrier portion from securely attaching to the seat base.

    If the infant carrier does not properly attach to the base, the carrier can detach in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

    What to do

    4moms will notify owners and will replace the infant carrier portion, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin mid-January 2017.

    Owners may contact 4moms customer service at 1-888-614-6667.
