Maxi-Cosi car seat recall expanded
Fri, Feb 5, 2010 (BabyCenter News) -- Dorel Juvenile Group has expanded its July 2009 recall of Maxi-Cosi car seats due to problems with the car seat base.
The car seat may not attach to or detach from its base properly due to warping of the base or a bad fit between the base mounting bracket and the car seat. If the seat is improperly mounted on the base, a child riding in it could be injured in a crash.
This recall involves Mico infant car seats with the following model numbers: 22-371 (styles HFL, JUC, LMD, PNG, and ORE), 22-372 (style TTH), and the base only of the Maxi-Cosi Mico car seat system with model number 22-515 (style BLK).
The recalled car seats were produced from February 18, 2008 through June 28, 2008. Dorel will notify all registered owners and will send a remedy kit consisting of two base springs, a hex wrench, and instructions for the base spring replacement.
