Diono is recalling several models of car seats due to risk of children not being properly protected from injuries during a crash.
Diono has stated that when particular models being recalled are secured to the car using the lap belt without also using the top tether, may risk not adequately protecting the child.
Due to this risk, the child seats fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 213, “Child Restraint Systems.” Models being recalled include the Radian R100, Radian R120, Radian RXT, Olympia, Pacifica, and Rainier convertible as well as booster seats.
Diono has said they will notify owners, and provide a free remedy kit with an updated instruction manual, an energy absorbing pad, as well as a new chest clip, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 22, 2017. Owners may contact Diono customer service at 1-253-256-9939.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov. The recall report can be found here.
