Nothing is more important to us at Baby Trend than the safety of your child. Many of us working here are parents ourselves, and we understand that you are putting your trust in our hands when you purchase our products to carry your little one. For 26 years, we have designed each of our products first and foremost with safety in mind, and we have applied strenuous testing procedures and thorough quality inspection processes to make sure only the safest products reach the store shelves.
While we strive for perfection, there have been occasions when we have had to recall a product in order to make improvements, or to modify a product to abide by the latest safety standards. We work closely with Consumer Safety Product Commission (CPSC) on any and all reported incidences where our product was involved. When you register your product on our website or through the prepaid registration card, it allows us to quickly contact you should there be any concerns with what you have purchased.
If at any point you have any questions regarding the safety of our products, or if you’d simply like some additional information, do contact us directly or visit the following websites:

At Baby Trend, safety is our #1 priority and we design, engineer, and test all of our products with that in mind. Since we strongly stand by that priority, we have decided to voluntarily recall two models of the Hybrid 3-in-1 LX booster seats after determining that, in the event of a crash, the center adjusters may detach in the harnessed mode with a child weighing more than 40lbs.
The recall is very specific and only accounts for a total of 34 seats. Two model numbers, FB48417 (manufacture date 7/14/16) and FB58181 (manufacture date 7/23/16). Please check if your Hybrid 3-in-1 LX booster seat is on the list by reviewing the serial numbers affected below.
Most importantly, Baby Trend has received ZERO reports of injuries to children in connection with the use of these seats that are subject to this recall.
Baby Trend is providing customers who own these specific model and serial numbers a replacement free of charge. If you determine that you own one of these specific model and serial numbers you can obtain a replacement by calling Baby Trend customer service at 1-800-328-7363 or by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.

April 15, 2014 TrendZ FastBack 3-in-1 Car Seat At Baby Trend safety is our number one priority and we design, engineer, and test all Baby Trend products with that in mind. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determined, through its own investigation, that certain AmSafe Signature, QT harness buckles on some Graco car seats, when engaged, may not easily unlatch. Based on the NHTSA investigation and because we stand by our number one priority of safety, Baby Trend is voluntarily recalling similar buckles used on the TrendZ Fastback 3-in-1 car seat.
Only the following two Models are involved:
TrendZ Fastback 3-in-1 Car Seat by Baby Trend Models: FB60070 & FB60408 These seats were produced between 10/2011-7/2013
As noted, these two select models use a harness crotch buckle which may become resistant to unlatching over time, due to exposure to various contaminants (like food and drinks) that are present in everyday use of the car seat. This condition may make it difficult to remove a child from the vehicle. There is no such risk if the buckle is functioning normally. These car seats meet all requirements for crash safety under the federal FMVSS 213 safety standard. If you are not experiencing difficulty unlatching the buckle, you can continue to use the seat to safely transport your child.
Most importantly, Baby Trend has received zero reports of injuries to children in connection with the use of this buckle on the seats that are subject to this recall.
Baby Trend is providing customers who own the TrendZ Fastback 3-in-1 Car Seat (Models: FB60070 & FB60408) a remedy kit, free of charge. The remedy kit includes a replacement buckle and instructions on how to install the new buckle. The remedy kit can be ordered by calling Baby Trend customer service at 1-800-328-7363 and will start to ship the week of May 12th. Please do not return the car seats to retailers. If you are experiencing difficulty unlatching your buckle before your remedy kit arrives, cleaning the buckle should alleviate any difficulty. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or concern this matter has caused you and your family.
