KOLCRAFT ANNOUNCES FREE REPLACEMENT SEAT CUSHIONS FOR PERFECT FITT MODEL 180-200 CHILD RESTRAINTS

 KOLCRAFT ANNOUNCES FREE REPLACEMENT SEAT CUSHIONS
 FOR PERFECT FITT MODEL 180-200 CHILD RESTRAINTS
 CHICAGO, Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc., of Chicago announced today a voluntary seat cushion replacement program affecting "PERFECT FITT" Model 180-200 child restraints, manufactured prior to July 1990. This recall does not apply to seats manufactured after July 1990.
 Kolcraft notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it was conducting a voluntary replacement program after government tests indicated that some seat cushions in these child restraints did not pass a compliance test which measures the rate at which the seat cushion would burn. Kolcraft is offering consumers a free replacement seat cushion to ensure that the cushions comply with the federal requirements. Owners can identify whether their seats are covered by this voluntary replacement program by locating the white label on the back of the seat that identifies the model number and date of manufacture of the child restraint.
 Kolcraft strongly urges parents to continue using their Perfect Fitt child restraints while waiting for the replacement seat cushion to arrive. Children who are properly secured in a child restraint are much less likely to suffer serious injury in a car crash than an unrestrained child. This voluntary replacement program does not affect the ability of the child restraint to protect a child in the event of a collision, and Kolcraft has received no complaints of injury associated with the seat cushion.
 Owners may call Kolcraft toll-free at 800-453-7673 for a replacement seat cushion free-of-charge. Owners may also write to Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc., 3455 W. 31st Place, Chicago, Ill., 60623.
