WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) – More than 500,000 child car seats made by a company called Diono are being recalled because they may not adequately protect children in a crash.
The recall covers the Radian R100, Radian R120, Radian RXT, Olympia, Pacifica, and Rainier convertible and booster seats. They were made from January of 2014 to September of this year by Diono, which used to be called Sunshine Kids Juvenile.READ MORE: Crandall High School Dismisses Early Out Of 'Abundance Of Caution' Following Non-Specific Threat
