Car seat manufacturer Diono is recalling 6,900 booster seats saying they seats’ headrests can break or separate in the event of a crash, resulting in an increased risk of injury.
According to FOX 8, certain Cambria 2 booster seats manufactured by Diono “fail to comply with requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 213, ‘Child Restraint System.’” The headrest can detach from the backrest during a collision, increasing the risk of injury.
Diono plans to notify owners of the recalled booster seats shortly, and they will provide a replacement backrest with headrest assembly to affected customer free of charge.
The company says owners can convert the seat into a backless booster seat until the replacement backrest is installed.
The following Diono Cambria 2 booster seat models are included in the recall:
