Combi USA recalls more than 33,000 child seats

(Toledo News Now) -

Combi USA is recalling more than 33,000 child car seats made prior to January 2013 because the seats' harnesses don't meet federal standards.

The company is recalling the Coccoro, Zeus Turn and Zeus 360.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the seat straps for those models don't meet minimum strength requirements, which could lead to the child not being properly secured in the event of a crash.

A company spokeswoman says the seats are still safe to use because, while one part of the harness failed strength tests, the harness as a whole meets safety standards.  Seats made after January 2013 do not have the failing part.

Combi says they will notify registered owners and send out free harness replacement kits starting in February.  Owners can contact Combi at (800) 543-7734.
