The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued the following car seat recall:
NHTSA Recall ID Number: 23C001
Synopsis: Columbus Trading-Partners USA, Inc. (CTP) is recalling certain Cybex models Aton, Aton Q, Aton M, Aton 2, and Cloud Q rear facing infant seats. Please refer to CTP's recall report for specific model details. The design of the webbing for the central seat belt adjuster allows it to fray, which can reduce the strength of the seat belt. As such, these infant seats fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard numbers 213, "Child Restraint Systems" and 209, "Seatbelt Assemblies." An infant seat belt with insufficient strength many not properly restrain the occupant, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. CTP/CYBEX will mail owners a replacement central seat belt adjuster strap assembly and installation instructions, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed March 13, 2023. Owners may contact CTP's customer service at 1-937-415-3215.
