Description: RECARO Child Safety LLC (RECARO) is recalling certain RECARO ProSPORT model child restraints, manufactured from June 16, 2010, through January 31, 2013. When the affected child seats are installed with LATCH lower anchors only (without the top tether), the child’s head can move excessively, increasing the risk of injury. As such, these seats fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”
 
Consequence: 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.

Remedy:

RECARO will notify registered owners and will provide, at no cost, a label to affix over the existing information label and a complete set of new instructions informing owners to discontinue use of the LATCH system when the weight of the child reaches 40 pounds. Owners may contact RECARO at 1-888-973-2276 or info-usa@recaro-cs.com.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
