Evenflo Co. To Recall Some Booster Seats

MIAMISBURG, Ohio (AP) -- Evenflo Co. says it is recalling some of its Maestro combination child booster seats because of a crack that developed in lab tests.

The company says it has no reports of the crack occurring in field and no injuries have been reported.

The voluntary recall affects nearly 14,000 seats with model numbers starting with 310. They were built from Nov. 24, 2009 to April 9 of this year.

The company says it will send notices to registered owners of the seats. Evenflo plans to distribute an easily installed reinforcing bracket.

Consumer Reports magazine says the recall comes after its tests showed the seat can crack and fail in a simulated 30 mph frontal collision.
