Full text of the recall
Production Dates: May 1, 2016 – August 31, 2019
Noncompliance: Combi USA, Inc. (Combi) is recalling certain Combi BabyRide Infant Car Seats, model 378099 with dates of manufacture of 5/1/2016 thru 8/31/2019. The 1-inch-wide webbing strap used in the center front adjuster to adjust the shoulder harness straps fail the minimum initial breaking strength requirements, and in certain circumstances, may not adequately restrain a child during a crash. As such, these car seats fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”
Consequence: A child that is not adequately restrained in a crash has an increased risk of injury.
Corrective Action: The remedy for this recall is still under development. Combi has not yet provided a date for owner notifications. Owners may contact Combi customer service by emailing [email protected].
Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.nhtsa.gov.
