Evenflo Recalls Maestro Child Car Seats
13,792 Evenflow Maestro Combination Booster Seats are being recalled as the seat may crack and fail in frontal crashes, which increases the risk of injury.
The car seat manufacturer is recalling the seats due to research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealing that the seats fail to conform to the structural integrity requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
Which Evenflo car seats are being recalled?
The recall affects Maestro car seats with model numbers beginning with 310 and built from Nov. 24, 2009, through April 9, 2010.
The combination car seat uses a five-point harness for restraining younger children. When the harness is removed, the booster seat can be used for older children. The Maestro’s booster seat mode was named a Best Bet by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Will Evenflo repair the seats?
Evenflo will provide owners and care givers a reinforcement plate along with repair instructions. However, parents should not use the seat until the reinforcement plate has been installed. Owners may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 1.888.327.4236 for more information.
