Issue:

5514KM Corporation and Transport Canada wish to inform the public that a select number of Fisher-Price Safe Voyage Grow With Me child restraint systems may contain material that does not conform to the flammability requirements indicated in the Motor Vehicle Restraint Systems and Booster Seats Safety Regulations.

Safety Risk:

Transport Canada’s compliance testing program revealed this concern and notified the company.  The company was able to determine that for the range of manufacturing dates indicated above, a material layer underlying the fabric cover was not properly adhered to the cover and therefore burned at a rate exceeding the regulatory requirements.  In the case of a vehicle fire, the underlay material may not self-extinguish or may burn too quickly, aiding in the spread of the fire.

Company Action:

5514 KM Corporation will contact all registered owners with instructions on how to obtain the replacement fabrics for the affected restraint systems, free of charge.

Consumer Recourse:

Parents and caregivers should replace the fabrics on their products as soon as possible.  All non-registered consumers or consumers who have moved are encouraged to contact 5514 KM Corporation by email or by phone for instructions on obtaining the replacement fabric.  The affected seats should not be returned to retailers or the company.
