Company will provide replacement fabric cover with compliant warning label.
Dorel China America, Inc. (DCA) has recalled approximately 28,800 Babideal Storm Booster car seats, model BC901BPXL, sold exclusively at Family Dollar Stores, because the label attached to the fabric cover may not have the required safety warnings and instructions. As such, these child seats fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 213, Child Restraint Systems. The company warns that without the safety warnings and instructions, care givers may not know the risks or how to properly use the child seat, increasing the risk of an injury in the event of a crash (NHTSA Recall Notice, No. 19C002, Report receipt date: October 17, 2019).
Remedy. DCA will notify the registered owners and will provide a replacement fabric cover that has a compliant warning label in place, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 9, 2019.
Contact information. Owners may contact DCA customer service at 1-877-657-9546 or text 1-812-373-6673. 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.
