Transport Canada reports of a recall involving Dorel's Safety 1st Onside Air LX car seat. Some restraint systems were manufactured with incorrect pads which are missing slow-recovery energy absorbing material. Furthermore, the air bag warning label affixed to these pads is written in English only.
This product does not comply with Transport Canada’s safety regulations governing child restraints. Transport Canada requires that DDC provide affected consumers a replacement pad that contains the energy-absorbing material required by the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS).
Corrective Action:Retailers are instructed to return all affected units to Dorel Distribution Canada for rework.
All registered owners with affected car seats have been sent a letter indicating how to obtain a free pad replacement kit. Non-registered owners, or owners who have moved, are asked to contact Dorel Juvenile Group toll-free at 1-800-544-1108 between 8 am and 5 pm EST Monday through Friday in order to obtain a free pad replacement kit.
