Recall Alert: 39,000 Recaro ProSport Car Seats

RecaroRecall

Car Seats Affected: More than 39,000 Recaro ProSport model 385 car seats manufactured between June 16, 2010, and Jan. 31, 2013

The Problem: When the seat is installed with the lower Latch anchors only, without the top tether, the child’s head can move excessively, increasing the risk of an injury. In a crash, the seat could fail to protect the child from contacting interior surfaces of the vehicle, increasing the risk of an injury.

The Fix: Recaro will begin notifying registered owners this month and will provide a label to affix over the existing info label, along with a complete set of new instructions informing owners to discontinue use of the Latch system when the weight of the child reaches 40 pounds. The new label will be provided for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Recaro at 888-973-2276, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
