    Combi Car Seats Recall

    If you have the following car seat, click through to the Safercar.gov press release for more information:

    Combi USA, Inc. (Combi) is recalling certain model 8220 (Coccoro) child restraints manufactured January 6, 2009, through December 5, 2012; model 8836 (Zeus 360) child restraints manufactured February 25, 2009, through May 24, 2012; and model 8815 (Zeus Turn) manufactured from July 15, 2007, through March 25, 2009. The harness webbing fails to meet minimum breaking strength requirements. Thus, these child seats fail to comply to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”

    There’s some more info at the Combi web site here.

    I highly recommend signing up for recall notifications from the NHTSA here.
