Subaru recalls Forester over child-safety issue

BLADE STAFF AND NEWS SERVICES

DETROIT — Subaru is recalling more than 275,000 Forester SUVs because a rear seat belt may not hold a child seat securely in place.

The recall involves certain Foresters from the 2009 to 2012 model years, according to federal safety regulators.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Forester owners might not be able to install child seats properly, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

Dealers will notify owners and begin replacing the belts free of charge starting April 13.
