September 12, 2013: Dorel Juvenile Announces Recall of Safety 1st and Eddie Bauer Carseats
The Dorel Juvenile Group announced a voluntary recall of a number of certain Safety 1st and Eddie Bauer child restraint systems.
What’s the Deal?
Dorel Juvenile has determined that certain child restraint systems do not fully comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. A color coordinated ease of use label depicting the rear-facing mode instruction was positioned on the incorrect side of the base. The arrows on this label point towards the forward-facing belt path instead of the rear-facing belt path which could potentially cause confusion to the consumer.
Do You Own It?
The models affected are manufactured from July 10, 2010 through May 18, 2011 and include Convertible child restraints Alpha Omega Elite, Deluxe 3 in 1, Complete Air LX and Complete Air SE. See the complete list of model numbers and CRS descriptions at the official product recall.

If you own one of the affected seats, call Dorel Juvenile Group’s Recall Hotline at 1-877-675-2355, Monday through Friday, 8AM to 5:00PM EST or email them at email@example.com. The affected seats should not be returned to the retailer. Visit the firm’s website at www.djgusa.com and click on safety notices for more information.
