This morning Evenflo Company, Inc., along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Office of Defects Investigation (NHTSA) announced the voluntary recall of over 13,000 Maestro Combination Booster Seats. This is a direct response to a crack that occurred in some of the child restraint systems during high-impact frontal collision laboratory tests in late September. The crack could cause the child product to not properly retrain the child within the seat, increasing the possibility of injury or death.
There have been no reports of the crack occurring to consumers and no injuries have been reported. Nevertheless, Evenflo has removed all Maestro Combination Booster seats from store shelves.
The recall involves Maestro Combination Booster Seats built between November 2009 through April 2010 whose model numbers begin with 310. To find the model number, look behind the seat and above the shoulder belt slot. The white label there will list the number.
In response to the defective child product, Evenflo will give owners of the Maestro Combination Booster Seats a bracket that is easy to install to reinforce the seat. It will be free of charge.
If you have purchased a Maestro Combination Booster Seat and think your model may be affected by the recall, please visit the Evenflo website or call 800-233-5921 for more information.
