Product Safety Australia have recalled the Dorel Australia Pty Ltd—Maxi-Cosi A2 Euro Convertible Car Seats due to a potential risk of the restraint not adequately securing a child in an accident.

The Dorel Australia Pty Ltd—Maxi-Cosi A2 Euro Convertible Car Seats with the identifying feature of Euro A2 with a date of manufacture between 16 September 2014 to the 12 March 2015 have been recalled.

The car seats were sold nationally by the following retailers:

  • Baby Bunting
  • Bubs Baby Shops
  • My Baby Warehouse
  • Toys 'R' Us
  • Independent Specialty retailers across Australia.

The defect is that 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.

The resulting potential hazard is that 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.

Customers need to identify if they have Euro A2 with a date of manufacture between 16 September 2014 to the 12 March 2015. Dorel will provide consumers with a free replacement trim for affected car seats. The old trim will be returned to Dorel and not the retailer.

As an interim solution, please ensure that the harness adjuster is free of any impediments when fitting a child into the restraint. For further information on identifying the date of manufacture please visit the IGC Dorel website www.maxi-cosi.com.au
