RECALL: 98,000 CLEK Foonf and Fllo Convertible Car Seats Manufactured Before May 21, 2021 Due To Choking Hazard

NHTSA and Transport Canada today announced a voluntary recall of certain Foonf and Fllo convertible car seats manufactured before May 21, 2021.

It has been determined that it is possible for a child to access the EPP foam cushion with their fingers through the crotch buckle opening in the fabric and pick at the foam. After repeated picking, the foam could be a choking hazard if they put it in their mouth.
