Evenflo has voluntarily recalled over one million of its car seats, because under side-impact collisions the seats could become dislodged.

The laboratory tests were conducted by Evenflo and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. High-speed side-impact collisions caused some of the seats to be dislodged.

The Discovery Infant Car Seat models 390, 39, 534, and 552 were recalled. Owners do not have to discontinue using the seats.

Evenflo is providing owners of these models with a supplemental dual-hook fastenered, which secures the seat during side-impact collisions. Contact Evenflo at (800) 356-2229 or www.evenflo.com/Discovery to request a free fastener. Shipping will take three to four weeks.
