Warning about Combi car seats

Consumers have been warned about potential problems with infant transport products made by Combi USA Inc. for the second time in less than a year.

The company's infant carrier has been recalled because even a moderate collision could cause it to separate from its base, Health Canada said. It recommends using the seat belt to hold the carrier in until consumers get a repair kit.

Retailers sold 536 units of the "travel system," which includes a stroller, car seat and car-seat base, between Aug. 5, and Oct. 27, 2007.

Consumers can get a repair kit from Isis Inc., the importer, by calling 1-800-667-4111.

The models covered are the Centre DX: 781395/981395, 789462/998047; Centre ST: 784850/991465, 784850S/991465; and Cosmo ST Travel System: 714650/991465

In July, Transport Canada warned that the Combi Centre infant car seat needed a replacement lower anchor strap.
