The booster seats with batch numbers 3111, 7819, 7822, and 7831 and model number TOD1058, TOD9109, and ZEE0649 are included with the recall. Both the batch number and model number are printed on the label attached to the product frame.
The booster seats were sold in various stores and their websites, plus on valcobaby.com from June 2011 to June 2012 for $80 to $100.
There have been two confirmed reports of children falling after the booster became disengaged, no injuries were reported.
