Over 50,000 child safety seats recalled

56,000 Insufficiently Childproofed Car Seats Recalled

More than 50,000 children's car seats have been recalled because of a harness safety problem.

Car seat company Evenflo has announced the recall of the Transitions 3-in-1 car seat because the design allows a child enough access loosen their own harness. The company says without a snug harness restraining the child, the potential for injury increases.

"Through our regular review of consumer feedback on our products, we have identified a potential safety concern with our Transitions 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seat that we want to share with you," Evenflo wrote in an announcement on its website.

The announcement said the problem only affects the seats if they are used in forward-facing harnessed booster mode.

The company is offering a free remedy kit for those impacted by the recall and says that it will virtually eliminate a child's access to their harness to loosen the seat.

No injuries have been reported because of the problem so far.
