Child Car Seats Recalled Due to Possible Injury

The National Traffic Highway Safety Administration has issued two recalls due to possible injury to a child in the event of an auto accident. Both cases involve the actual seat separating from the base unit, but one is if there is a car crash in the front and the other involves side impact auto accidents.

The first recall is for the Evenflo Discovery child seats manufactured by Evenflo Company, Inc. from 2005 through 2008. Approximately 1,000,000 Discovery model numbers 390, 391, 534, and 552 are being recalled because the seat may separate from the base in a “high impact side collision” providing no protection for the child. Consumers should contact Evenflo at 1-800-356-2229 or for instructions on getting an additional hook to ensure the seat remains stationary.

Combi USA Inc. is recalling approximately 67,000 Combi infant seats due to possible separation in a front end crash. The model numbers include 4400, 4515, 4520, 8065, 8074 8086, 8087 and 8520 and were made between October 2005 and December 2007. Consumers should contact Combi to obtain a repair kit at 1-800-543-7734 or .
