Dorel Juvenile recalls 89,000 child safety seats
Incorrect installation labels were put on the seats.
DETROIT (AP) — Dorel Juvenile USA is recalling more than 89,000 child safety seats because labels showing how to install them could be wrong.
The recall affects some Safety 1st Complete Air LX, Safety 1st Complete Air SE, Safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite and Eddie Bauer Deluxe 3-in-1 convertible models.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says on its website that the rear-facing belt path installation arrows are wrong and could cause the seats to be installed incorrectly. If that happens, a child could be hurt in a crash. The company says there no incidents or injuries have been reported.

The seats were made from July 20, 2010, through May 18, 2011.
Company spokeswoman Julie Vallese said the incorrect labels were put on the seats to make them easier for customers to use and are not required by safety laws. Installation information in the owner's manuals is correct, she said.
"The performance, crashworthiness, all of the structural integrity of the car seats are unaffected in any way by this recall," Vallese said.

Columbus, Ind.-based Dorel contended that the problem was inconsequential to safety of the seats, but NHTSA rejected the claim and ordered the recall.
