Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Car Seats are subject to this recall:

  • Dorel Australia Maxi-Cosi A2 Euro Convertible Car Seats, with a manufacture date between 16 September 2014 and 12 March 2015.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional variations of the recalled products are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, in some instances, the fabric around the harness adjuster mechanism may get caught in the mechanism, allowing the shoulder harnesses to loosen without lifting the harness adjuster. If the harness is loosened the child restraint is no longer effective in restraining the child in the event of an accident or sudden braking, increasing the risk of injury to the child.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Euro A2 Car Seats with a date of manufacture between 16 September 2014 to the 12 March 2015, please do not use them for your children. Instead, contact Dorel for a free replacement trim for affected Car Seats. The old trim will be returned to Dorel and not the retailer.

In the interim, please ensure that the Car Seats’ harness adjuster is free of any impediments when fitting a child into the restraint.

If you have any questions about this recall, please consult the IGC Dorel Web site at http://www.maxi-cosi.com.au
