Century Products is recalling 4 million rear-facing infant child seats that have a "type 1" handle and manufactured between January 1, 1991, and July 31, 1997.
The handle on the seats can crack during normal use outside a motor vehicle, which can lead to an unexpected break.
If the handle unexpectedly breaks, the child could fall to the ground possibly causing serious injuries.
What to do
To prevent future cracking or failure of the child seat handle, Century will provide owners with an improved handle and installation instructions.
Owners should contact Century at (800) 345-4109, to obtain the free replacement handle.
