by in Featured, Recalls


Today Combi USA, Inc. (Combi) announced they are recalling 39,395 Coccoro Convertible Child Restraints, model number 8220, manufactured January 1, 2009, to June 29, 2016. When the Coccoro car seat is installed in a forward-facing position and only secured with the vehicle’s lap belt, excessive force may be transmitted to the car seat occupant in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury. As such, these child seats fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 213, “Child Restraint Systems.”

Combi USA, Inc. recommends always using the vehicle tether anchor, and the use of lower anchor (LATCH) belts or the vehicle lap-shoulder (3-point) belts with lock-off when installing your seat in a forward-facing position.
