Pro-Sport Car Seat

RECALL 8/20/14

Description and Issue:

RECARO Child Safety LLC (RECARO) is recalling certain RECARO ProSPORT model child restraints, manufactured from June 16, 2010, through January 31, 2013. When the affected child seats are installed with LATCH lower anchors only (without the top tether), the child’s head can move excessively, increasing the risk of injury. As such, these seats fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”

Remedy:


RECARO will notify registered owners and will provide, at no cost, a label to affix over the existing information label and a complete set of new instructions informing owners to discontinue use of the LATCH system when the weight of the child reaches 40 pounds.

There have not been any bad incidents with this product yet.
