MIAMISBURG, OH (WCMH/AP) — Evenflo is recalling nearly 30,000 combination booster seats because children can loosen the harness without an adult’s knowledge.

The recall covers certain Evolve 3-in-1 seats. Government documents say that if the harness is loose, it could increase the risk of injury in a crash.

Evenflo says there have been no reports of injuries, but the company has received 27 complaints that children have been able to loosen the harnesses.

The Miamisburg, Ohio, company will notify registered owners and provide a remedy kit with a replacement harness adjustment button at no cost.

“Child safety is at the forefront of every decision we make,” said Sarah Haverstick, Evenflo Safety Advocate. “In conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Transport Canada, we are working to ensure all owners are aware of the voluntary campaign.”

To determine if your seat is affected and to order your remedy kit, visit www.evolve.evenflo.com or call 1-800-233-5921, Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm.

The recall is expected to start on Sept. 26.
