Evenflo car seat unsafe - recall

Evenflo 310 Maestro child restrain system recall

The Evenflo Company, Inc. has had a product recall on 13,792 child restrain systems due to a flaw.

The recalled units are certain Maetro child restrain systems with the model numbers beginning with 310. These units were built between November 24, 2009 through to April 9, 2010.

What is the danger?

The recalled seats fail to conform to the structural integrity requirements of the US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS).

If there was a car crash a crack could form at the front of the seat adjacent to the harness adjuster which could cause the child to not be adequately restrained. This increases the risk of injury.

What do I do?

The Evenflo company will give owners and care givers a free reinforced plate along with repair instructions. This safety recall is expected to begin in October.
