"We are parents, too, and protecting children is our core mission at Evenflo. While our current Discovery car seat models have performed well to protect infants in actual side impact automobile collisions without any reports of serious injury or death since they were introduced, we want to take further steps to protect the safety of children who use our products," said Rob Matteucci, CEO of Evenflo. "These lab tests do show there is potential for the base to detach from the seat in high impact side collisions, so we are recommending that all Discovery owners use the supplemental dual-hook fastener, available free from Evenflo."
To order the supplemental dual-hook fastener, Discovery 390, 391, 534, 552 model owners should call Evenflo at 1-800-356-2229 between 8 AM and 5 PM EST or visit evenflo.com. No shipping costs will be incurred and orders will arrive in approximately 3 to 4 weeks. In the meantime, consumers should continue to use their Discovery infant car seat and there is no need to return it to retailers.
