Peg Perego has issued a safety notice for Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seats manufactured between July 2007 and March 2008. The actual notice from the Peg Pergo site can be found here. All Safety Squad Clients affected by the notice have been emailed.
The following is from their site.
"Peg Perego has taken this voluntary action because mold flash may exist on less than 0.25% of plastic car seat adjuster covers manufactured between July 2007 and March 2008. (Mold flash is a situation where excess plastic leaks from the mold and creates an unintended edge on the component.) Although this part passed the Sharp Edge Test as mandated under federal safety testing procedures, the mold has been redesigned to eliminate the problem on subsequent production runs.
The part in question has scratched the heels of some bare-footed infants. In the reported incidents, professional medical attention was not required, nor were the children seriously injured.
A new, skin-safe adjuster cover has been sent to all customers whose registered Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30 car seats fall within the July/March manufacturing window. To ensure no one is missed, Peg Perego will send a skin-safe adjuster cover free of charge to any customer who requests one by calling Peg Perego toll-free at 1-800-671-1701.
Child safety and comfort is Peg Perego's top priority. To ensure that it remains as such, Peg Perego is providing an Online Associate to facilitate customer interaction on the web. It is Peg Perego's goal to effectively and proactively communicate with the public through this medium."
