Dorel Juvenile Group Announces a Voluntary Safety Recall for Certain Models of the Cosco® Touriva® Child Restraint
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Columbus, IN December 17, 2007- Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) is announcing a voluntary safety recall for certain Cosco® Touriva® child restraints manufactured from September 28, 2004 through September 20, 2007. There is a potential for the elastic straps that secure the fabric pad to the child restraint shell to come loose and become accessible to the child. The child could then loop the elastic strap around portions of his or her body. There have been no serious injuries reported.
Model numbers affected are:
Cosco® Touriva: 22100TTD, 22100FSM, 22100TIP, 22111FSM, 22130WAL, 93100FSM, 93111FSM
Cosco Regal RideTM: 22139MON
The model number and date of manufacture may be found on a sticker located on the side or back of the child restraint.
DJG will contact all registered owners and at the same time will provide them with a free repair kit. Those consumers who have not registered their product or do not receive the repair kit should visit www.djgusa.com or call 1-888-698-6681 to order a free repair kit. There is no need to return the affected seats to the retailer.
DJG encourages parents to obtain and install the repair kit as soon as possible. Parents may continue to use the child restraint as directed in their instruction manual.
