Combi USA is voluntarily recalling 67,000 child car seats because federal tests show the seats might separate from their bases in front-end collisions.
Though Combi has received no reports of injuries, a recent test done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed that the seat could potentially fail to adequately protect children in a frontal collision.
Models being recalled include Centre, Centre ARB and Shuttle rear-facing infant seat models 8065, 8074, 8086, 8087, 8520 and the travel systems that contain these seat models 4400, 4515 and 4520. The recall includes the entire production of these models from October 2005 through December 2007.
Consumers are being asked to contact the company to obtain a free retrofit kit on its Web site or by calling 1-800-543-7734.
