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
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.
