Background & Company Action:
Evenflo has received a total of 275 reports from consumers in Canada and the United States through their consumer help line. Transport Canada has received no complaints. Evenflo is offering, free of charge, a fix kit consisting of instructions and two moulded parts that fit on both sides of the carrier and provide additional support for the handle.
There is no safety risk when the carrier is used in a vehicle. When carrying the carrier outside of a vehicle, ensure that the harness system is snugly adjusted. Until a fix kit is received, it is not recommended that the carrying handle be used.
A consumer may telephone the Evenflo toll free number (1-800-557-3178) to receive a fix kit.
