DETROIT (AP/WAVY) — Evenflo is recalling nearly 30,000 combination booster seats because children can loosen the harness without an adult’s knowledge.

The recall covers certain Evolve 3-in-1 seats. Government documents say that if the harness is loose, it could increase the risk of injury in a crash.

Evenflo says there have been no reports of injuries, but the company has received 27 complaints that children have been able to loosen the harnesses.

The Miamisburg, Ohio, company will notify registered owners and provide a remedy kit with a replacement harness adjustment button at no cost.

To determine if your seat is affected and to order your remedy kit, visit http://www.evolve.evenflo.com or call 1-800-233-5921 (US) Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. The remedy kit includes a push-style harness adjustment button, to replace the existing pull-style button.

The recall is expected to start on Sept. 26.
