On Friday, October 15, 2010, Evenflo announced a voluntary recall of certain Evenflo Maestro combination harness/booster seats sold in the US and in Canada. The recall pertains to all models that were manufactured between 11/24/2009 (inception) and 4/9/2010 in the US. If you have a Canadian Maestro model – the recall period is 12/17/2009 thru 4/26/2010. Any models made after the recall period are not affected by this particular problem and we should consider those units safe to use unless we receive information to the contrary.
Before I go into any further details, I just want to take this opportunity to point out the necessity of registering your child restraint products – either by mailing in the completed registration card that came with the seat or by registering it online through the manufacturer’s website. If you don’t register your carseat or booster, or if you forget to update the registration address when you move, there’s a good chance you could be left in the dark if there’s ever a recall.
