Dorel Distribution Canada in cooperation with Transport Canada is conducting a Public Notice of the Maxi-Cosi Mico Infant car seat and base, manufactured from Mar 8, 2008 to June 28, 2008.
In a small number of cases it has been found that when the seat is installed onto the removable base, the seat will latch into the base, but it may not fully lock. When the seat is latched but not fully locked, the base release handle is not completely retracted. Should this situation occur the child could be injured in the event of a crash.
No injuries have been reported.
ONLY THE FOLLOWING MODEL NUMBERS ARE AFFECTED:
22371CJUC, 22371CLMD, 22371CORE, and 22371CPNG, plus a Maxi-Cosi car seat base model 22515CBLK that was sold separately.
Model numbers and manufacture dates of the infant restraints are printed on a sticker on the back of the infant seat as shown below. Manufacture dates are printed in the YY/MM/DD format.
Model number and manufacture date on the stand alone base can be found on a label on the top portion of the base.
