Dear Retailer:

Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG), in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), has determined that a performance issue related to motor vehicle safety exists in certain child restraint systems. 

Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) is issuing a safety recall for certain Cosco, Maxi-Cosi, and Safety 1st brand child restraints manufactured from May 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009 because there is a potential performance issue for the harness adjustment strap to loosen during use.  Although the likelihood of incidence is low and there have been no reported serious injuries, we feel strongly that conducting a safety recall is the right thing to do, given our strict product performance and quality standards.

The models affected are manufactured from May 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009 and include Convertible child restraints Alpha Omega, Alpha Omega Elite, Enspira, Priori, Prospect, and Vantage; Infant child restraints OnBoard and Mico.  These child restraints represent stand alone units or travel systems that begin with "01" and "TR"

The affected models were produced from May 1, 2008 through April 30, 2009 and include:
