Nearly 60,000 Maxi-Cosi and Safety 1st infant car seats have been recalled due to a detachment issue that could lead to serious injury.
In an ad, Dorel Youth Group said the affected car seats did not meet the requirements of a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard that covers “Child Restraint Systems.”
All models of Safety 1st onBoard 35 SecureTech, Maxi-Cosi Coral XP, Maxi-Cosi Mico XP, Maxi-Cosi Mico XP Max and Maxi-Cosi Mico Luxe+ rear-facing car seats and Maxi-Cosi car seat base Infant are part of the retreat.
More than 59,400 car seats are included, which were manufactured from May 1, 2020 to February 28, 2023.
According to the company, there is a risk that the anchors at the bottom of the seat fail and detach from the base.
“When the car seat is installed in the vehicle with the base secured with the lower anchors, the seat can become detached,” says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration explained. “A removed child seat may not adequately restrain the occupant, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.”
Max-Cosi said the car seats are safe to use “with the base installed with the vehicle belt, or with the carrier shell installed with the vehicle belt only” until a free replacement basement can be shipped. to the clients.
No injuries have been reported due to the issue, which was discovered during third-party testing.
Affected customers who registered their car seats should be notified by letter or email by April 7, 2023, the company said.
