I’ve written articles about the importance of making sure your child in safely restrained in a car seat in the event of a Georgia car accident. Not only should you have your child in an approved child safety seat, but you should make sure that you register the seat so you can be notified in the event of a car seat recall.
Recently parents were advised that their Evenflo child restraint system may be faulty. Certain Maestro child restraint systems with model numbers beginning with 310 which were built between November 24, 2009, and April 9, 2010 are being recalled because they fail to conform to the structural integrity requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems."
In an Atlanta car crash, a crack may form at the front of the seat adjacent near the harness adjuster. This can cause the child to not be adequately restrained and increases the risk of serious injury or death.
If you think you own this child safety seat, you can contact Evenflo toll-free at 1-800-233-5921. Evenflo is providing a reinforcement plate and repair instructions free of charge.
