2002 Infant Car Seat Recall

Potential Problem:

A number of SnugRide Infant Car Seats may have missing components on the base or seat. The components are metal hooks and ā€œUā€ bars that are used to attach the carrier to the base. If the hardware is missing, the carrier may not be securely attached to the base. In the event of a sudden stop or crash, the carrier may detach from the base possibly resulting in serious injury or death.
