Evenflo® Co. to Recall Maestro Booster Seats due to Injury Hazard
October 15, 2010 – This week, Evenflo Inc. announced that it is recalling nearly 14,000 of its Maestro combination child booster seats because of a crack that developed in laboratory tests. Consumer Reports magazine said the recall came after its tests showed the seat can crack and fail in a simulated 30 mph frontal collision.
The recall affects seats with model numbers starting with 310. They were built from Nov. 24, 2009 to April 9 of this year. The company says it will send notices to registered owners of the seats. Evenflo plans to distribute an easily installed reinforcing bracket that will fix the problem.
Children weighing under 40 pounds should not use the seat without the repair bracket, Evenflo said in a statement. Those over 40 pounds can still use it as a seat belt-positioning booster until the repair kit arrives, the company said.
