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.

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.
