RECARO North America, Inc. is recalling certain Signo child restraint assemblies manufactured from February through September 2008. The central front adjuster strap on some seats may slip within the metal adjuster (A-Lock) that controls tightness of the harness, thereby preventing the harness from being properly tightened. If this condition existed and a vehicle crash occurred, the child would not be properly secured in their child restraint system and may sustain injury. RECARO will notify owners and replace any defective child restraint system free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during March 2009. Owners can contact RECARO customer service toll-free at 1-888-473-2290.
At this point, this is the only information that we have. We weren’t able to find any additional information on Recaro’s website at the moment but we’ll continue to post additional details when they become available.
In the mean time, if you own a Recaro Signo that was manufacturered from 2/2008 – 9/2008 please check your harness straps to make sure there isn’t any obvious slippage.
