(WFLA) – Evenflo has issued a voluntary recall of  32,000 car booster seats because of a harness button that can be loosened by the child in the seat.

If the child is able to loosen the harness, they may not be properly secured in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Evenflo said in a news release that no injuries have occurred in connection with the issue. Evenflo said it has identified a trend in complaints regarding use of the seat in harnessed mode through its regular review of consumer feedback.

The booster seats in this recall are certain Evolve 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seats  model number 34411700 which was manufactured February 26, 2015, to February 9, 2016 and model number 34411741 which was manufactured May 27, 2015, to February 9, 2016.

Corrective Action: Evenflo will notify the registered owners, and will provide a remedy kit with a replacement harness adjustment button, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 26, 2016. Owners may contact Evenflo at http://www.evolve.evenflo.com or 1-800-233-5921.
