Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall by Peg Perego USA Inc. affecting certain Primo Viaggo infant car seats, Pliko Travel System and Primo Viaggo Systems.

A small percentage of these car seats and car seat/stroller combination products have a bottom latch mechanism on the seat, on the left, side that does not completely engage the latching rod.  This is due to the improper positioning of the metal reinforcing bracket of the latch mechanism during manufacturing.
