One hundred sixty child injuries have been attributed to the handles; among them, two concussions and a fractured skull.
The recall notice advises that the child seat is safe to use for travel when properly belted into an automobile, but consumers should not rely on the carrying handle until a repair kit has been fitted to the product.
