Child restraining seats manufactured and distributed by Evenflo are being recalled over defective structures that could lead to injuries, according to multiple news agencies.
The official recall communication issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revealed that over 13,000 units of Maestro Child Restraint Systems should not be used until the company has shipped reinforcement plates along with installation instructions to every consumer affected by this recall.
According to the firm, child restraint systems model numbers beginning with 310 were equipped with harness adjusters that could crack in the event of a crash, which could result in an injury since the child could suddenly become unrestrained or inadequately restrained. To avoid injuries, the company has decided to put their consumers safety ahead of profits and a recall announcement was issued.
Parents or caregivers can identify the recalled products by the brand’s name and the date of manufacture that ranges between November 24th, 2009 and April 9th, 2010.
If you have any of these recalled safety seats in your possession, do not use them until a replacement plate has been shipped to you. Avoid accidents and keep your child safe by staying on top of all recall news, especially recall announcements related to products that are designed for children.
Any personal injury lawyer can tell you that it’s better to be safe than sorry so act fast and have your child restraining seats fixed as soon as possible.
