PhotoRecaro Child Safety is recalling 173,063 ProRIDE child restraints, model number 332.01 in all colors (AK21, KAEC, KAEG, KK91, MC11, MJ15, QA56, QA9N, QQ11, QQ14, and QQ95), manufactured from April 9, 2010, through June 9, 2015; and Performance RIDE child restraints, model number 333.01 in all colors (CHIL, HABB, HAZE, JEBB, JETT, KNGT, MABB, MARI, MNGT, PLUM, PLBB, REBB, SLBB, REDD, ROBB, ROSE, SABB, SAPH, SLTE, VIBB, VIBE), manufactured from January 15, 2013, through June 9, 2015.

 

In the event of a crash, the top tether anchorage may detach from the child restraint. As such, these restraints fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 213, "Child Restraint Systems."

 

If the top tether anchorage detaches from the child restraint, there is an increased risk of injury to the child or other vehicle occupants.

 

Recaro will notify and send all registered owners a length of webbing with loops on both ends and instructions to further secure the child restraints. The retrofit kit will be provided free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2015.

 

Owners may contact Recaro customer service at 1-866-628-4750 or by email at recarorecall@m-s-s.com.
