Xportation Safety Concepts Has Recalled the XSCi Pioneeredâ„¢ Rear Facing Child Seat

(SafetyAlerts) -  Xportation Safety Concepts Has Recalled the XSCi Pioneeredâ„¢ Rear Facing Child Seat because in the event of a vehicle crash, the cradle can detach from the deflector base, possibly resulting in serious injury or death.

Models: XSCi Pioneeredâ„¢ Airbag Compatible Rear Facing child seats with seat pad colors Blue/Blue and Brown/Blue. (There is no model number associated with this product.)

Production Dates: February 1 through March 7, 2002.

Noncompliance: These seats exceed the maximum head excursion criteria of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems." In the event of a vehicle crash, the cradle can detach from the deflector base, possibly resulting in serious injury or death.

Corrective Action: XSCi has notified its customers and is offering a replacement seat (produced by an alternate child seat manufacturer) and will pay for the return of the noncompliant seat. XSCi will repair the noncompliant seat and return it to the customer. Owners who do not receive the free seat replacement within a reasonable time should contact XSCi at 800-630-6850.
