Baby Trend Car Seats Recalled

Baby Trend is recalling 3,582 Latch-Loc Car Seats, Models 6400, 6439, 6448, 6481, and 6484. The dates of production will be provided at a later date. Incorrect steel was used on the latch connector locking pawl.
The latch connector locking pawl can crack allowing the seat base to detach from the vehicle’s latch anchors during a severe crash . This can result in the seat failing to provide the proper protection for its occupant.
Baby Trend will notify owners and replace the base for free. Only rigid Latch-Loc model child restraints are involved in this recall. The recall is expected to begin during June 2008. Owners can contact Baby Trend Toll-Free at 1-800-328-7363.
