Thule has announced a recall on some of its RideAlong child seats. The problem is an excess of a flame-retardant in the harness padding that can be toxic if ingested or touches the skin or eyes.

The recall involves about 8640 units in the U.S. and another 3880 units in Canada.

Owners should stop using the RideAlong and contact Thule for free replacement harness padding and instructions on how to return the recalled padding.

Thule can be reached toll-free at 888-816-0228 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday, email, or online. Thule also is contacting all known consumers.

The RideAlong is gray with a black three-point harness padding. The model number and date code can be found on the bottom side of the seat. Only model number 100107 and date codes 21/3-23/10 (March 2021 to October 2023) are included in this recall.

The child seats were sold at REI Co-op and baby stores nationwide and online at and from May 2017 through October 2023 for about $300.

Thule is undertaking this as a voluntary recall. We’re always encouraged when a brand moves to recall a problematic product voluntarily; such a move reassures us that the brand does prioritize consumer safety. We’ve typically had good experiences with a number of Thule products.

Consumers can learn more about the recall on Thule’s recall page.
