If you own one of these seats, check that your seat is installed using the correct belt path, knowing it may be mislabeled. The rear facing belt path lies under the child’s legs, the closest opening to the vehicle seat back when rear facing. The forward facing belt path lies behind the child’s back, again the closest opening to the vehicle seat back when the child seat is placed forward facing. Then contact Dorel Juvenile for replacement stickers: call the Recall Hotline at 1-877-675-2355, Monday through Friday, 8AM to 5:00PM EST or email [email protected]
