A detaching problem with the Maxi-Cosi and Safety 1st infant car seats has led to the recall of nearly 60,000 of them.
Dorel Juvenile Group stated that the impacted car seats did not meet the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard criteria that address “Child Restraint Devices.”
Rear-facing baby car seats from Safety 1st onBoard 35 SecureTech, Maxi-Cosi Coral XP, Maxi-Cosi Mico XP, Maxi-Cosi Mico Luxe+, and the Maxi-Cosi Infant Car Seat Base are all included in the recall.
More than 59,400 automobile seats produced between May 1, 2020, and February 28, 2023, are included.
According to the manufacturer, the lower anchors on the seat run the risk of failing and coming loose from the base.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated that the seat could separate when the car seat was put into the vehicle, and the base was fastened using the lower anchors.
A disconnected child seat that cannot adequately hold the occupant increases the danger of injury in a crash.
The car seats are secure to use “with the base installed using the vehicle belt or with carrier shell only installation using the vehicle belt,” according to Max-Cosi until a free replacement base can be provided to clients.
The problem, which was found during independent testing, has not been associated with any injuries.
By April 7, 2023, the corporation shall send letters or emails to affected customers who registered their car seats.
