Nearly 60,000 Safety 1st and Maxi-Cosi car seats are being recalled over fears that a child could be unrestrained in a car crash, leading to injuries.

Consumer Reports said multiple models are part of the recall. The issue is fears that the car seats’ self-retracting lower anchoring systems on certain models “fail to conform” to federal safety standards, according to their parent company, cited by Local10.com.

Maxi-Cosi’s recall news release said, “Consumers may continue to safely use these car seats with the base installed using the vehicle belt, or with carrier shell only installation using the vehicle belt, consistent with the existing instruction booklet and labels. A free replacement base will be sent directly to you when it becomes available.”

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also reported the issue, saying that consumers with recalled carseats will get safe replacements free of charge and should expect owner notification letters by April 7.
