Lerado Recalls 5,540 Infant & Child Seats, Bases

November 11, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is alerting consumers to immediately stop using Mia Moda Viva and Viva Supreme infant and child restraint systems due to safety defects. 

Lerado, the manufacturer, is recalling 5,540 seats and bases because they could fail to adequately restrain a child in the event of a crash, NHTSA said. The restraint's harness splitter plate located on the rear of the seat has sharp edges that could cut the harness straps. In addition, the restraint's base is vulnerable to cracking during a crash. 

The affected model numbers include the 5000 (seat), 5001 (base), 5050 (seat), 5051 (base), 5070 (seat), 5071 (base), 5080 (seat), and 5081 (base) manufactured in 2006 through 2009. The models and serial numbers can be found on the infant seat or car base. The company will also offer a full refund of the purchase price of the affected seat.

For more information, contact Lerado at (877) 546-8437.
