Recent Recall information:


January 11, 2017
Hybrid LX 3-in-1
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: babytrendrecall@babytrend.com.

PLEASE DO NOT RETURN THE SEAT TO THE RETAILER.

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.
