WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Citing defects in the product, Cosco Inc. announced Tuesday that it is recalling 34,580 children's car safety seats.
Cosco, a maker of the car seats based in Columbus, Indiana, announced the recall through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) because some of the buckles on the child seats are defective and eventually can become inoperable.
It involves model numbers 02-751-DDF and 02-751-MMF of the Arriva infant child restraint seat. The seats were manufactured from March 1 through May 31, 1995.
NHTSA Administrator Ricardo Martinez said the seats are safe to use, but when the harness release button is pushed, the latch and spring may separate, causing the buckle to become unusable. Call 1-800-221-6736 for more information.
