The company voluntarily recalled the units in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. It involves the Combi Shuttle Travel System, which officials said includes a car seat that can disengage from the stroller’s frame.

No incidents or injuries have been reported in association with the recalled product, which was made in China. The item and sold online at Amazon.com, Babies R Us.com, Target.com and other online retailers from June 2015 through September 2016 for between $350 and $400, which includes the stroller and car seat.

The recalled units have model number 6100027 or 6100100 printed on a label at the base of the car seat and the stroller’s leg. They were sold in titanium (silver) and red chili (red) colors. Combi is printed on the front of the stroller and car seat, and Shuttle is printed above the model number.

Consumers can continue to use the strollers and car seats separately. However, they have been advised to stop using the recalled strollers with the car seats attached and contact Combi for a free repair. This consists of straps to secure the car seat to the stroller.

Consumers can contact Combi USA toll free at 844-332-6730 or online at www.combiusa.com and click on the Safety Notifications tab at the bottom of the page for more information. Combi USA also will contact consumers directly who registered their products.

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
