Dorel has received 77 reports of the child restraint handle fully or partially coming off the car seat/carrier resulting in at least three injuries to infants including bumps, bruises and a head injury.

Parents and caregivers should contact Dorel Juvenile Group to receive a free repair kit.  Consumers should not use the handle of the car seat/carrier until the repair kit has been installed, however, it can still be used as a car seat when properly installed in the vehicle.

According to the recall notice, the car seat/carriers were sold with Travel Systems. The stroller portion of the travel system is not affected by this recall.
