TORONTO — Sears Canada Inc. says it has been advised by Dorel Distribution Canada of a potential safety matter relating to certain Cosco, Safety 1st, Eddie Bauer, and Maxi-Cosi branded child restraints.

Sears (TSX: SCC) says in a statement released late Monday that there is a potential for the harness adjustment strap to loosen during use, meaning a child may not be fully protected in a motor vehicle collision.

So far, there have been no reported injuries associated with this in Canada.

Sears says customers should not return their travel system, but should visit the Dorel Juvenile group website (at www.djgusa.com) to get a free repair kit.

Some of the affected restraints were sold at Sears Canada retail stores, online and through the Sears Canada catalogue.

The car seats and travel systems were manufactured between May 1, 2008 and April 30, 2009.
