Kiddy USA is recalling World Plus's model 51 100 WP combination forward facing child restraints that convert to a high back booster seat. Manufactured from July 2, 2012 through October 5, 2013, the seat buckle/tongue on the combination child restraint/booster seats may only partially engage which can give users the false impression that the buckle is properly latched. These seats fail to meet the requirements set by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 2013, "Child Restraint Systems,"
In the event of a crash, a partially engaged buckle will not properly restrain a child and greatly increases the chance of injury.
A notification schedule has not been provided by the manufacturer yet, and the remedy for the recall is under development. Kiddy USA's customer service may be contacted at at 1-855-925-4339. Customers can also call 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov to contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline.
