Peg Perego Primo Viaggio recalled (sort of)

I got an email from the NHTSA this morning, stating that the plastic adjustment cover on certain Peg Perego Primo Viaggio infant car seats may have an exposed mold flash with a sharp edge that could cause cuts, scratches or abrasions on babies' feet or legs. The affected car seats were manufactured in Juuly 2007 through mid-March 2008, so over 32,500 seats are possibly affected.

Peg Perego has been sending free repair kits to registered owners since April 2008. I'm going to speculate that this notice was sent out this morning to reach unregistered owners, though I still can't figure out why it's going out now if Peg Perego has been aware of the problem since early last year.

To obtain your own free repair kit, call Peg Perego at 1-800-671-1701.

I say this is "sort of" a recall because Peg Perego is simply calling it a "safety campaign." You can read more about the safety campaign at their web site. And the NHTSA notice is here.
