KOLCRAFT ANNOUNCES SAFETY RECALL FOR DIAL-A-FITT II CHILD RESTRAINTS

 KOLCRAFT ANNOUNCES SAFETY RECALL
 FOR DIAL-A-FITT II CHILD RESTRAINTS
 CHICAGO, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc., of Chicago, announced today a voluntary safety recall affecting Dial-A- Fitt II child restraints (model number 180-600) manufactured from Nov. 1, 1990, through June 30, 1991.
 Kolcraft notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it was conducting the recall campaign after a laboratory test determined that the seats did not meet the child restraint system integrity requirement contained in federal safety standards. As a result, the seats could fail to restrain a child in the event of a car crash. There have been no reports of injuries related to the system's integrity in any of the Dial-A-Fitt II models, however.
 Kolcraft will furnish owners of the Dial-A-Fitt II with a new child restraint free of charge. Owners can identify the date of manufacture of their child restraint by looking at the white label on the back of the child restraint. Owners may call Kolcraft toll-free at 1-800-453-7673 to obtain a new child restraint. Owners may also write to Kolcraft Enterprises, Inc., 3455 W. 31st Place, Chicago, IL 60623. The new seats are available now.
 All owners of the recalled seats are urged to contact Kolcraft to obtain a new seat, whether the seat is presently used or not. Future users or owners may not be aware of this recall and therefore would have a defective seat.
 Kolcraft strongly urges parents to continue using their Dial-A- Fitt II child restraints while waiting for the new seat. 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.
