The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recalled certain Maxi-Cosi cat seats, in cooperation with Dorel Juvenile Group, Inc. The initial recall notice included the Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 and Pria 85 Max convertible seats, and now includes the Pria 70 as well.
The recalled seats are for children nine to 70 pounds and have found to not adequately protect from head injury if involved in a crash, when installed in the forward-facing position and secured using the lap belt without also using the top tether. Keep reading to see more details of the recall.
When used in both the rear and forward-facing modes with children up to 65 pounds according to proper installation methods, all models can continued to be used. As of now, there have been no issues of injuries reported.
Currently, the NHTSA has not released a course of action if you have the affected seats. However, if you have questions, you can contact a Maxi-Cosi customer service representative by calling 877-657-9546, emailing Pria85recall@djgusa.com or visiting consumercare.maxicosi.com/s/contactsupport.
