33,000 Combi USA Car Seats Recalled

33,000 Combi USA Car Seats Recalled

A company that makes child car seats is recalling more than 33,000 of them because the harnesses aren't strong enough to meet federal safety standards.

Combi USA is recalling three types of seats made before January of 2013.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the seat straps don't meet minimum strength requirements.

If there's a crash, children may not be properly secured.

A company spokeswoman says the seats are still safe to use because the harness as a whole meets safety standards.

Combi will notify registered owners and send out free harness replacement kits starting in February. Owners can contact Combi at (800) 543-7734.
