RECALL: Evenflo recalls more than 1.3 million child safety seat buckles

Evenflo is recalling more than 1.3 million child safety seat buckles due to the risk children could not be removed quickly in an emergency.

The National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration said Friday that the recall includes buckles used in a number of children's convertible and booster seat models manufactured between 2011 and 2014. This includes some of Evenflo's Momentum, Chase, Maestro, Symphony, Snugli, Titan, SureRide and SecureKid models.

The buckle may become stuck in a latched position, making it difficult to remove a child from the seat. This could prove critical to a child's safety in the case of an emergency.

Evenflo will alert registered owners this month and provide replacement buckles.

Regulators are also investigating the safety of one of Evenflo's rear-facing infant seats.
