Fisher-Price Recalls 900,000 of Its Child Safety Seats

From Associated Press

Fisher-Price is recalling about 900,000 child safety seats because of defects that can make them difficult to buckle or allow the shoulder belts to move out of proper position, the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday.

The recall involves three models of safety seats manufactured by Fisher-Price.

Model 9100 and 9101 seats made between February and October, 1989, have plastic on the buckle shield that can break after repeated use.

Model 9101 seats made between February, 1991, and January, 1992, are being recalled because the shoulder belts can move out of their proper position.

Model 9104 deluxe booster seats manufactured between April 24 and Sept. 4 have a red button on the buckle that can come off, and keep the buckle from fastening.

Fisher-Price's toll-free number between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. EDT is (800) 332-3457 for models 9100 and 9101, and (800) 432-5437 for model 9104.
