Car Seat Recalls

Recently there has been a rash of car seat recalls. Please check your child’s car seat and make sure it isn’t involved in these new recalls.

  • Triple Play Products, LLC has recalled some of their Sit’N’Stroll child restraint systems because the harness webbing used to adjust the straps failed to meet the breaking strength requirements mandated by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
  • BabyRide Infant Child Restraint Systems, model 374199, manufactured by Team-Tex America Inc. is being recalled due to mislabeling the ‘horizontal reference line’. Incorrect positioning could result in injury in the event of a collision.
  • Signo and Como Child Restraing Systems that were manufactured from November 1st, 2007 through February 16, 2009 are being recalled by Recaro North America, Inc. A mechanical spring was made too large, which can cause the front adjuster straps to slip, preventing the harness from being securely fastened.
  • Peg Perego Primo Viaggo Sip 30/30 child restraint systems that were manufactured between July 1st, 2007 and March 14th, 2008, may have a sharp edge exposed on the mold flash toward the bottom of the seat. This could cause bruising, cuts or scratches on the child’s feet and/or legs.
  • Several models of the Frontier Child Restraint System manufactured by Britax are being recalled. Apparently, if the straps on the harness are loosened one at a time, there is a risk of the straps becoming detached from the connecting metal yoke on the back of the car seat. In the event of a crash, the child may not be securely restrained.
