MMS ID 48852 (created by CM Utility) automatic-content-migration

This car-seat failure happened when the five-point harness was in use, but not when the car seat’s booster mode was tested. The two Maestro seats that failed the crash tests and led to the recall were early production models. Maestro seats manufactured after April 9, 2010, have design modifications and passed Consumer Reports’ tests. They are considered safe.

Evenflo will provide registered owners with a repair kit, which includes a reinforcement plate, free of charge. Parents using the Maestro’s five-point harness system should stop using the car seat until they’ve added the reinforcement plate to the car seat. Those using the Maestro only as a booster seat can continue to use it.

For more information of if you haven’t registered your Maestro car seat, call Evenflo at 800-233-5921.
