2002 Infant Car Seat Recall

Print

Potential Problem:

A number of SnugRide Infant Car Seats may have missing components on the base or seat. The components are metal hooks and “U” bars that are used to attach the carrier to the base. If the hardware is missing, the carrier may not be securely attached to the base. In the event of a sudden stop or crash, the carrier may detach from the base possibly resulting in serious injury or death.
