RECARO Child Safety LLC (RECARO) is recalling certain RECARO ProRIDE and Performance RIDE model child restraints, manufactured from April 9, 2010 through June 9, 2015.
When the affected child seats are installed using the top tether, the top portion of the restraint can crack and allow the top tether to separate from the restraint. As such, these seats fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”
Models Affected: RECARO ProRIDE and Performance RIDE manufactured under the Part/Model Numbers 332.01.AK21, 332.01.KAEC, 332.01.KAEG, 332.01.KK91, 332.01.MC11, 332.01.MJ15, 332.01.QA56, 332.01.QA9N, 332.01.QQ11, 332.01.QQ14, 332.01.QQ95, 333.01.CHIL, 333.01.HABB, 333.01.HAZE, 333.01.JEBB, 333.01.JETT, 333.01.KNGT, 333.01.MABB, 333.01.MARI, 333.01.MNGT, 333.01.PLBB, 333.01.PLUM, 333.01.REBB, 333.01.REDD, 333.01.ROBB, 333.01.ROSE, 333.01.SABB, 333.01.SAPH, 333.01.SLBB, 333.01.SLTE, 333.01.VIBB, 333.01.VIBE
Dates Affected: April 9, 2010 – June 9, 2015 Units
Consequence: In the event of a crash, the child restraint could fail to protect the child from contacting interior surfaces of the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury. No injuries or serious problems have been reported.

Owners may contact RECARO at 1-888-973-2276 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
