Kiddy has announced a recall for some of their Kiddy World Plus combination seats. On the affected seats, the buckle on the shield may not fully engage, meaning that a parent or caregiver might think the child was properly buckled into the seat when she was not.

Update as of 6/18/16: Kiddy is advising parents to send the seat back to them for a full refund, including shipping costs. This is regardless of mode used.
