Combi USA has announced a recall of its Shuttle Travel Systems over fears that the child safety seat, which can attach to a stroller frame, could detach and pose an injury risk if it and the child riding in it fell.
The seats and strollers were manufactured in China and imported by Combi USA. New, they cost around $350 to $400 at online stores like Amazon.com, BabiesRUs.com and Target.
The recalled Combis were on the market from June 2015 to September 2016.
Around 1,000 of these are believed to have been sold. If you think you might have one you’ll need to check for printed labels affixed to the base of the child safety seat and the leg of your stroller frame. The affected model numbers are:
If you do end up with a recalled Combi you’re urged not to try to attach the child safety seat to the stroller frame until Combi sends you a free repair kit, which you can request here. You can, however, continue to use the stroller with its other seat without worry. And, of course, you can continue to use the child safety seat as a car seat.
This is Combi’s second recall in less than a year. Last July the company recalled its Coccoro child safety seat after it failed to meet federal guidelines for child restraints.
