Product Safety Australia have recalled the Dorel Australia Pty Ltd—Maxi-Cosi A4 Euro & Hera Convertible Car Seats due to the potential risk of the restraint not adequately securing a child in an accident.

The Dorel Australia Maxi-Cosi A4 Euro & Hera Convertible Car Seats (3 Height Marker) was 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 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. In addition, the A4 model does not have the correct certification.

The potential hazard is 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.

Consumers need to check their seat to determine if it has 3 height markers on the left hand side of the cover. If your car seat is affected, Dorel will provide customers with a free replacement Maxi-Cosi Convertible Car Seat.
