(CBS) Almost 800,000 child safety seats are being recalled over concerns about a potentially dangerous problem with the locking-and-release mechanism, the National Highway Traffic Administration announced today.

The seats were made by Dorel Consumer Group between May 1, 2008 and April 30, 2009, according to the agency's website. They include infant, convertible, and booster child restraint systems marketed under brand names including Cosco, Maxi-Cosi, and Safety First. The concern is that the harness might loosen as a child moves around, raising the risk of injury in a crash.

The company said it would provide consumers with a tube of non-toxic lubricant that can be applied to the locking mechanism to ensure that it works properly, along with a label to indicate that the repair has been made.

Until the repair is made, consumers can continue to use the seats - but should make sure the lock/release button is in the locked position. A pull on the shoulder harness can help make sure it is secure and will not loosen.

For more information, contact the company at 866-623-3139 or harnessadustment@djusa.com.
