Recaro has issued a recall affecting 173,063 ProRIDE and Performance RIDE convertible car seats. All were manufactured before June 9th, 2015. Please note, this recall only affects select Recaro ProRIDE and Performance RIDE convertible car seats, not all. The recall is due to the possibility of the shell of the car seat cracking when the child restraint is installed forward-facing, has the top tether strap attached and is being used with a child who weighs more than 52 lbs. Luckily, no injuries or serious problems have been reported.
For parents who registered their car seats, Recaro will send a recall kit containing materials to correct the potential problem. If you're unsure if your child's car seat is part of the recall, you can visit recaropromotion.com/RIDErecallSept2015 and input the model number and manufacture date of the car seat. Those numbers can be found on a white sticker on the side of the ProRIDE and Performance RIDE. Please contact Recaro customer service with questions (866)628-4750 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
