Media Advisory - Transport Canada Advises Public On Harmony Juvenile Products Recall

OTTAWA, May 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Harmony Juvenile Products has issued a recall on their child car seat, the V7 Convertible Deluxe Car Seat (Model# 0302001TNC). Transport Canada identified a safety non-compliance issue with the seat through car seat verification testing. During simulated crash tests with a 6 year-old test dummy, the bolts that secure the base of the car seat to the backrest were observed to tear through, or partially through, the plastic shell, leaving exposed sharp edges and protrusions. This recall affects 9,300 units across Canada.

The safety of Canadians is a top priority for the Government of Canada. The Motor Vehicle Restraint Systems and Booster Seats Safety Regulations do not allow child restraints and booster seats to have exposed sharp edges and/or protruding surfaces following a dynamic compliance test.

Transport Canada has actively investigated the non-compliance with the cooperation of Harmony Juvenile Products. The company subsequently tested and validated reinforced V7 Convertible Deluxe Car Seats and has manufactured brackets to reinforce the existing product.

There have been no consumer reports of separation or injury reported in Canada, and Transport Canada has received no complaints of the bolts tearing and injuring a child or caregiver.

All registered consumers will receive the parts and installation instructions necessary to reinforce their car seats. Non-registered owners of affected car seats, or owners who have moved, should contact Harmony Juvenile Products' customer service department (1-877-306-1001) to receive instructions regarding obtaining the reinforcement parts.

In the interest of safety, Transport Canada and Harmony Juvenile Products would like to emphasize the importance of obtaining and installing the reinforcements as soon as possible, as this problem may affect the overall safety of the restraint system if the connection between the backrest and base is compromised. This could result in an unanticipated or unpredictable response in a vehicle crash. If consumers have been in a collision and have experienced this type of issue, please contact Transport Canada's office of defect investigations as soon as possible at 1-800-333-0510.
