Evenflo Co. announced yesterday that they have recalled thousands of booster seats in the United States and Canada after they failed labratory tests that showed what would happen to the seats if they were involved in a collision.
The Ohio-based company said that the recalled products include the Maestro Combination Booster Seats with the model number that begins with 310. The products were made from December 2009 to April 2010 and in the U.S. 13,792 seats have been affected.
The company has said that there has not been any injury reports from the booster seats or any reports of the seat cracking in the field. Lab tests showed that the booster may crack if involved in a high-impact collision causing extra slack to be created and the child can be thrown from the seat.
