Combi-USA has issued a voluntary recall notice for the Coccoro, Zeus Turn and Zeus 360 child restraints.  The restraints do not fully comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for Child Restraint Systems.

The Coccoro, Zeus Turn and Zeus 360 child restraints, when tested as a complete child restraint system, do fully comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Standard 213.

However, the webbing used on the harness of the affected child restraints has an embedded plastic button that keeps the buckle tongues from sliding into the recesses of the restraint. The webbing with the embedded plastic button, when tested independently from the child restraint system, does not meet the minimum breaking strength in accordance with Federal standards. The embedded plastic button affects the overall strength of the seat belt assembly, and in turn could potentially affect the overall performance of the child restraint in the event of a crash.

Combi has received no reports of accidents or injuries. No other car restraint models are affected.

Combi is providing a free remedy kit to registered owners. Consumers are encouraged to continue use of the Coccoro, Zeus Turn and Zeus 360 child restraints while awaiting the remedy kit described below. These child restraints, when tested as a complete child restraint system, do fully comply with U.S. safety standards. 

The products impacted, Model 8220 manufactured between January 6, 2009 - December 5, 2012, Zeus Turn Model 8815 manufactured between July 15, 2007 - March 25, 2009 and Zeus 360 Model 8836 manufactured between February 25, 2009 - May 24, 2012 are being sent this recall notification.
