Evenflo recalls 18,000 car seats
« on: October 15, 2010, 10:04:54 PM »
Evenflo Company, Inc. today initiated a voluntary safety recall of certain Maestro Combination Booster Seats to address a crack that occurred in certain laboratory tests simulating a high-impact, frontal collision. There have been no reports of this crack occurring in the field and no injuries have been reported. In the U.S., the initiative involves 13,792 seats with model numbers that begin with 310 that were built between November 24, 2009 and April 9, 2010. In Canada, the initiative involves seats with a model number that begins with 310 that were built between December 17, 2009 and April 26, 2010. Maestro child restraints built after April 2010 are not affected by this action.

The company requests that purchasers of affected Evenflo Maestro seats contact Evenflo for a free reinforcement kit by calling (in the U.S.) 800-233-5921 and (in Canada) 800-265-0749 between 8 am and 5 pm ET. Customers are urged to not return seats to retail stores where purchased.
