THE CHEST CLIP WAS INCORRECTLY PRODUCED WHICH COULD RESULT IN A MORE BRITTLE CHEST CLIP THAN WAS INTENDED. AS A RESULT, THE CHEST CLIP WHICH POSITIONS THE HARNESS STRAPS ACROSS THE INFANT'S SHOULDERS MAY BREAK WHEN THE CHEST CLIP IS ENGAGED AS THE INFANT IS SECURED INTO THE INFANT CAR SEAT.

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/results.cfm?rcl_id=10C005000&searchtype=quicksearch&summary=true&refurl=rss

(Tue, 22 Nov 2011 06:00:00 EST) Dated: OCT 12, 2010

EVENFLO IS RECALLING CERTAIN MAESTRO CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS WITH MODEL NUMBERS BEGINNING WITH 310 AND BUILT FROM NOVEMBER 24, 2009, THROUGH APRIL 9, 2010. THESE SEATS FAIL TO CONFORM TO THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 213, "CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS." IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, A CRACK MAY FORM AT THE FRONT OF THE SEAT ADJACENT TO THE HARNESS ADJUSTER CAUSING THE CHILD NOT TO BE ADEQUATELY RESTRAINED, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY.

CYBEX ( 10C003000 ) X-FIX MODEL BOOSTER SEATS

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/results.cfm?rcl_id=10C003000&searchtype=quicksearch&summary=true&refurl=rss

(Tue, 22 Nov 2011 06:00:00 EST) Dated: JUL 23, 2010

CERTAIN CYBEX SOLUTION X-FIX MODEL BOOSTER SEATS MANUFACTURED DURING FEBRUARY 2010, WERE PRODUCED USING AN INCORRECT WARNING LABEL. THE DEFECT CONSISTS OF AN INCORRECT WARNING STATEMENT RELATED TO SECURING AN UNOCCUPIED BOOSTER SEAT. THIS STATEMENT IS INCONSISTENT WITH CYBEX RECOMMENDED PRACTICES - ALWAYS SECURE AN UNOCCUPIED BOOSTER WITH THE VEHICLE SEAT BELT. IF A CAREGIVER FOLLOWS THE WARNING AS WRITTEN, THERE IS AN INCREASED RISK THAT THE UNOCCUPIED BOOSTER SEAT COULD STRIKE A VEHICLE OCCUPANT AND CAUSE INJURY IN A SEVERE CRASH. THE INCORRECT WARNING STATEMENT APPEARS IN THE OWNER'S MANUAL AND ON THE HEADREST WARNING LABEL. IN A SHARP TURN, CRASH, OR SUDDEN STOP, AN UNSECURED BOOSTER SEAT CAN BE THROWN AROUND AND COULD INJURE VEHICLE OCCUPANTS.

IF THE SHELL IS IMPROPERLY MOUNTED TO THE BASE, THE CHILD COULD BE INJURED IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH.
