The defect involves difficulty in unlatching the harness buckle. In some cases, the buckle becomes stuck in a latched condition so that it cannot be opened by depressing the buckle's release button. It may be difficult to remove the child from the restraint, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an emergency in which a prompt exit from the vehicle is required.
About 16,655 units are affected including models FB60070 (Granite) and FB60408 (Jellybean), manufactured between October 2011 and July 2013.
