Self-Retracting Infant Base Recall
TC Recall #: 2023-117
March 10th, 2023
Dorel Juvenile Canada has decided that all Maxi-Cosi Coral XP and Maxi-Cosi Mico XP Max rear facing infant car seats and Maxi-Cosi Infant Car Seat Base models with self-retracting universal anchorage system (UAS) fail to conform to the provisions of Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) No. 213 “Child Restraint Systems”.
The lower universal anchorage system (UAS) used to attach the seat base could fail. If this happens, the seat could detach in a crash. There have been no injuries reported related to this issue.
An infant seat that detaches in a crash creates an increased risk of injury.
Model names and model numbers impacted by this recall are:
Maxi-Cosi Coral XP

One of the affected models, Maxi-Cosi Mico XP Max 22321CFNA was also included as part of a Travel System, model 01371CFNA Lila CP Travel system.
The model numbers of the restraint systems can be found on a date of manufacture label located on the shell of the car seat:

The model numbers of the bases can be found on a date of manufacture label on the top of the base:

Dorel will mail a notice to all registered owners with instruction not to install the infant seat base using the lower universal anchorage system (UAS) connectors. Dorel advises that you may continue to use the seat with the base, or with the shell only, if you install it using the vehicle seat belt.
