Peg Perego Recalls Infant Car Seats

(SafetyAlerts) - Peg Perego USA, Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 14,087 infant car seats. The car seat can detach from the base, in the event of a crash, possibly causing serious injury or death to the child.

Dates of Manufacture:
February - June 2001

Peg Perego Infant Car Seat
Peg Perego Primo Viaggo System
Peg Perego Pliko Travel System

Certain infant car seats with base and car seat/strollers bundled as a single product, fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, "Child Restraint Systems." Due to the improper positioning of a metal reinforcing bracket during manufacture, the bottom latch mechanism of the child seat on the left side does not completely engage the latching rod of the base that stays in the vehicle. The consumer may believe that the car seat is properly attached to the base when it is not. In the event of a vehicle crash, the car seat can detach from the base possibly causing serious injury or death to the child

Peg Perego is notifying its customers and providing instructions on how to identify affected seats and perform the repair. Owner notification began during July 2001. Owners who do not receive the repair instructions within a reasonable time should contact Peg Perego at 1-219-423-9440
[NHTSA Recall No. 01E027].
