FBS ANNOUNCES VOLUNTARY RECALL CAMPAIGN OF CERTAIN MODELS OF ITS RENOLUX BRAND CHILD RESTRAINT SEATS

 GREER, S.C., July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- FBS, Inc., a manufacturer of automobile child restraint safety seats, announced today it is instituting a voluntary recall campaign of certain models of its Renolux brand GT-2000, GT-4000, GT-5000 and GT-7000 child restraint seats.
 The child restraint seats affected by this campaign were manufactured between Jan. 1, 1992, and Jan. 31, 1993, as indicated on the manufacturer's label on the back of the car seat. FBS, Inc. has determined that some of these seats do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS-213).
 Officials at FBS said tests involving the child restraint seat have shown that in an accident, some of the models may have foam padding in the seat that could compress at a rate greater than the limits allowed by the Federal Safety Standard.
 FBS officials ask that the owners of the Renolux brand child restraint systems contact the manufacturer at this toll-free number: 800-206-4400, to determine whether their car seat is affected by this corrective action.
 Renolux Turn-A-Tot(TM) Models 55323/36559 and 50323 and GT-2000 model 200-21 are not affected. For any child restraint system listed under the notification, FBS will supply, free of charge, a kit to correct the non-compliance.
