Evenflo Company Inc. in conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of 450,000 units of its Embrace Infant car seat/carriers. The defect has to do with the carrier's handle, which may unexpectedly release while the seat is being carried and tilt forward, potentially causing the infant to fall out.
While the defect doesn't have anything to do with the seat's use in a car, Evenflo has received reports of 160 injuries that have been caused by the defect, including a fratured skulls and other injuries. As such, we thought it prudent to make sure every auto enthusiast with children is aware of the defect so that the news can be passed along to other parents. Owners of the Evenflo Embrace car seat/carrier can contact the company at its website. The recall includes seats that have model numbers beginning with 317, 320, 397, 398, 540, 548, 549, 550, 556, 597, 598 or 599.
