May 2022 Recalls
Over 20,000 children’s transportation products are recalled due to safety concerns. Columbus Trading-Partners USA, Inc, a children’s car seat and stroller manufacturer, is recalling their CYBEX Sirona M Convertible Child Car Seats model as concerns grow over choking hazards. The concern comes from the Headrest Pad attached to the seat that sits behind the child’s head for support. The Headrest Pad is made from foam that can be easily ripped off the Headrest Pad. A loose piece of foam can present a choking risk for small children. The recall covers the CYBEX Sirona M Convertible Child car seat manufactured between November 3, 2017, and August 31, 2018. The recall models include numbers 518000385, 518002153, 518000387, 518002145, 518002149, 518002151, and 519000211. CYBEX is remedying this by sending customers a repair kit to fix the recalled product. This Kit will come with instructions to seal the headrest foam. Repair instructions are said to be mailed out by May 9, 2022. Customers may contact the manufacturer at 1-877-242-5676 for any questions or concerns.
