apparently affects a very few number of situations, but good to let people know.

"Owners of Clek Foonfs with dates of manufacture prior to May 19, 2016:
Firstly, don't freak out!
We have spoken to Clek and found out that the non compliance mentioned in this recall was forward-facing only with the 12 month old dummy and only in the lap-only with tether configuration. It was retested immediately at the same lab, and passed. All tests prior and since passed Transport Canada's requirements, but since Clek found that the performance was better in recline 2, they made the running change in May of 2016 to change the lap-only belt instruction in the Foonf manual.
Lap-only belts have not been included in vehicles since Sept 1, 2007, and since 1999/2000 when numbers were first collected, more than 3/4 of vehicles being manufactured had all lap/shoulder belts in the back seat.
The short version of this story? This affects a very small number of vehicles, and even then, the non compliance only happened with the 12 month old test dummy. And we know that you bought that Clek seat to rear face for ages and ages...right?
Anyone with any questions, concerns, worries, or just wanting to speak directly to the source, should call Clek customer service at 1-866-656-2462."
