Evenflo Company, Inc. reported to the Office of Defects Investigation, a division of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), on October 12 a defect in their Maestro Combination Booster Seats. Their report resulted in the company voluntarily recalling 13,792 child restraint systems on October 15. The defective child products will immediately be removed from store shelves, and Evenflo will provide consumers a free reinforcement plate for the booster seat.
The recall affects products with model numbers beginning with 310. The defective child products were built between November 2009 and April 2010.
In the event of a high-impact vehicle collision, it is possible for a crack to occur at the front of the booster seat, preventing sufficient restraint of the child. Injuries or death may occur.
No consumers have reported the crack or injuries occurring from using the Maestro Combination Booster Seat.
