10 Jan 33,000 Child Car Seats Recalled by Combi USA
Approximately 33,000 child car seats have been recalled by Combi USA due to concerns that the safety harnesses on these seats will break if the vehicle is in an accident. According to the recent child car seat recall announcement, the following specific models of Combi car seats are affected by this recall:
- Model 8220 Coccoro child car seats that were made from about January 2009 to about December 2012
- Model 8336 Zeus 360 child car seats that were made from about February 2009 to about May 2012
- Model 8815 Zeus Turn child car seats that were made from about July 2007 to about March 2009.
NHTSA Forces Combi to Initiate Child Car Seat Recall
This recall was initiated in response to a mandate the company received from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), as officials at the NHTSA had been the ones who had conducted follow-up testing on the recalled car seats and had, as a result, found that the safety restraints were susceptible to breaking during motor vehicle crashes.
Although officials at Combi tried to avoid having to issue the recall by showing the NHTSA the results of the company’s own testing on these car seats, the NHTSA rejected the company’s petition and has forced this recall to take place.
Parents who own the recalled Combi child car seats and have registered these seats with the company will:
- Be contacted by Combi representatives in the coming weeks
- Be receiving harness replacement kits, which are intended to strengthen the reportedly defective restraints on the recalled car seats
- Be able to receive additional information regarding this recall by calling 800-543-7734.
