The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently announced a recall for the Diono Cambria 2 booster seat. If you have this seat in your car, read on for important details about the recall.

NHYSA issued the recall notice on Mar. 24, 2021, citing the possibility of the headrest separating during a car crash. If the seat cracks between the headrest and the backrest, the top (headrest) component could come off and fail to protect the child.
