Thule Group of Sweden is recalling about 1,500 Thule Sleek Car Seat Adapters sold in the U.S., and Canada.

The plastic brackets on the car seat adapter can break, posing a fall hazard to infants.

The firm has received three reports of the plastic brackets on the car seat adapters cracking or breaking while in use. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the Thule Sleek Car Seat Adapter used to place a Chicco car seat on the Thule Sleek Stroller.

The adapter is metal with two black plastic brackets and clips onto the stroller. Only the car seat adapter is included in this recall.

Product number 11000301 is printed on a sticker located on the adapter’s plastic bracket. The UPC code is 091021188099.

The adapters, manufactured in China, were sold at REI, Buy Buy Baby, and other stores nationwide and online at Thule.com, and Amazon.com from December 2018, through February 2020, for about $60.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Sleek Car Seat Adapter and contact Thule Group to arrange for the return of the product for a full refund or to receive a free replacement product of a Thule Sleek Bassinet which works on the Thule Sleek Stroller.

Consumers may contact Thule Group toll-free at (855) 652-2688 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday, by email at carseatadapter@thule.com, or online at www.thule.com/carseatadapter for more information.
