WASHINGTON — Recaro Child Safety is recalling 39,181 Recaro ProSport model 385 child seats, citing safety concerns.

Recaro is recalling all of the models manufactured from June 16, 2010 and Jan. 31, 2013.

According to Consumer Affairs, the child seats are installed with the LATCH lower anchors only, potentially causing a child’s head to move around excessively. In the event of a crash, the seat may  fail to protect the child.

Recaro will notify registered owners and will provide, at no cost, a label to affix over the existing information label and a complete set of new instructions informing owners to discontinue use of the LATCH system when the weight of the child reaches 40 pounds.

Owners may contact Recaro at 1-888-973-2276.

    Ever think of maybe having a picture? Some people don’t know the brand of their car seat and wont even think to look at the brand make and model or made date unless they see a picture.
