  • 30711365,
  • 31511040,
  • 31511323,
  • 31511400,
  • 3151198,
  • 3151953,
  • 31521138,
  • 46811205,

  • 48111215A,
  • 48111218,
  • 48111234,
  • 48111235,
  • 48111235A,
  • 48111462,
  • 48411391,
  • 48411391D,

  • 48411504,
  • 48411504D,
  • 52911307A,
  • 52921040,
  • 55311138,
  • 55311238, and
  • 55311292.

The restraints were manufactured at various times from December 2011, through May 2013.

Over time, use of the seat can make the harness buckle difficult to unlatch. A buckle that does not release easily, or possibly at all, may make it difficult to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a vehicle crash, fire or other emergency in which a prompt exit from the vehicle is required.

Evenflo will notify registered owners and provide a remedy kit, including a replacement buckle and instructions for easy consumer removal of the AmSafe buckle and installation of the newly-designed replacement buckle. The recall is expected to begin on, or about, October 22, 2014.

Owners may contact Evenflo's toll-free number at 1-800-490-7591.
