The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is alerting owners of Baby Trend child safety seats about a safety recall. The affected seats are: Magnum (model number 6439), Galaxy (model number 6481), Silverado (model number 6448); and the 6400S bases that were sold separately and manufactured between May 14, 2007, and April 1, 2008.
Baby Trend is recalling the bases of these child safety seats because they could fail to adequately protect children in a collision. Baby Trend will replace the base free of charge.
Owners of the affected seats should contact Baby Trend at 1-800-328-7363 to obtain a free replacement base. In the meantime, NHTSA is urging consumers not to use the car seat with the base.
Consumers with questions about this or any other safety recall campaign may call NHTSA’s toll-free Vehicle Safety Hotline 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 800-424-9153); or go to www.safercar.gov. Consumers can be notified of future child seat recalls by registering with NHTSA here.
