RECALL: UPPAbaby Peg Perego Infant Car Seat Adapters
Health Canada issued a recall yesterday, one that involves an adapter that allows a Peg Perego Primo Viaggio Car Seat to attach onto an UPPAbaby Vista Stroller frame. The adapter is two pieces that attach to the right and left side of the stroller frame. It is sold separately from the stroller and the car seat and can be identified by SKU-0091.
It was discovered that the plastic pins on the adapter, which the infant car seat latches onto can break. This pin breaking can cause the infant car seat to disengage from the stroller frame causing a fall hazard for the occupant of the car seat.
Approximately 879 of the recalled products were sold in Canada, from May 2011 to November 2011.
So far, Health Canada has received 15 reports of the pins breaking off the adapters. No injuries have been reported. It is recommended that you immediately stop using the affected adapters and contact the distributor 5514KM Corporation to arrange to receive a free replacement adapter.
The company can be reached on their customer service line at 1-888-502-5514 ext 444 between 9 AM and 4:30 PM ET, Monday through Friday, or by email.
