Evenflo is recalling certain Maestro child restraint systems with model numbers beginning with 310 and built from November 24, 2009, through April 9, 2010. These seats fail to conform to the structural integrity requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”
In the event of a crash, a crack may form at the front of the seat adjacent to the harness adjuster causing the child not to be adequately restrained, increasing the risk of injury.
Evenflo will provide owners and care givers a reinforcement plate along with repair instructions free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during October 2010. Owners may contact Evenflo toll-free at 1-800-233-5921.
