Check your car seats and share this information with your friends, because this recall is a biggie! Recaro Child Safety has recalled 39,181 Recaro ProSport model 385 child restraints, manufactured from June 16, 2010, through January 31, 2013.

When these seats are installed with the LATCH lower anchors only (without the top tether), the child’s head can move excessively, increasing the risk of injury. In the event of a crash, the child restraint could fail to protect the child from contacting interior surfaces of the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.

If you registered your car seat, Recaro will be notifying you and will provide, at no cost, a label to affix over the existing information label and a complete set of new instructions. However if you have NOT registered, please contact Recaro at 1-888-973-2276. The campaign is expected to begin during August 2014.
