Evenflo Urges Customers to Respond to the Two-In-One Car Seat Recall; Company Makes Second Announcement to Collect More Affected Car Seats

    VANDALIA, Ohio--July 16, 1998--Evenflo Company, Inc. is urging owners of the Two-In-One Car Seat, model numbers 636 and 637 with manufacturing dates between January 7, 1998 and March 20, 1998, to contact the company immediately. Those car seats were recalled by Evenflo(R), in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, on May 19, 1998.
    In the testing of units manufactured between the above dates, the seat's backrest and base have separated when the occupant is restrained by the seat's internal five-point harness.
    "Although we implemented an aggressive recall program in May, we are still making every effort to alert customers through this voluntary second announcement in order to collect the remaining affected Two-In-One car seats. We are asking owners of the affected car seats to contact us as soon as possible to insure the safety of their children," said George Harris, president of Evenflo. "We will quickly send them a free replacement car seat."
    Consumers with affected car seats should call Evenflo at 1-800-985-SEAT(7328) to obtain their replacement seat. This announcement does not affect consumers who have already received their Two-In-One replacement car seat.
    Until consumers have received their replacement seats, they are advised to stop using the seat's internal five-point harness. Children between 30 and 65 pounds can still use the seat if a vehicle seatbelt that has both a lap and shoulder belt is used to restrain the child.
