Do you have a Combi car seat? Know someone who does?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recalled 33,000 of their car seats as the harness webbing fails to meet minimum breaking strength requirements thus failing to comply to the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”
Car seat model 8220 (Coccoro) child restraints manufactured January 6, 2009, through December 5, 2012; model 8836 (Zeus 360) child restraints manufactured February 25, 2009, through May 24, 2012; and model 8815 (Zeus Turn) manufactured from July 15, 2007, through March 25, 2009 are included in this recall. If you registered your seat, Combi will be notifying you and will provide free harness replacement kits along with repair instructions.
The recall is expected to begin by February 6, 2014. Owners may contact Combi at 1-800-543-7734 or visit their website at www.combi-intl.com. The seats can continue to be used until the kits are made available.
