A company called Diono, which used to be called Sunshine Kids Juvenile, is recalling more than half a million child auto seats.

The recall is for the Radian R100, Radian RXT, Olympia, Pacifica and Rainier Convertible and Booster seats.

The vehicle seats were manufactured between January 2014 and September 2017 by Diono, a auto seat manufacturer based in Sumner, Washington that was formerly known as "Sunshine Kids Juvenile". Furthermore, Diono says that very few children who weigh more than 65 pounds will be harnessed into the auto seats.

More than 500,000 child auto seats made by a company named Diono, formerly known as Sunshine Kids Juvenile, are being sent back to the company because they may not properly protect children in the event of an accident.

They say they discovered the problem in company testing.

Diono has said they will notify owners, and provide a free remedy kit with an updated instruction manual, an energy absorbing pad, as well as a new chest clip, free of charge. The recall is expected to start November 22.
