20,000 car seats recalled due to choking hazard

April 21, 2022

More than 20,000 child car seats have been recalled because loose pieces of foam in the seat could pose a choking hazard, Good Morning America reported.

The recall affects CYBEX Sirona M convertible car seats manufactured between November 3, 2017 and August 31, 2018, and includes model numbers 518000385, 518002153, 518000387, 518002145, 518002149, 518002151 and 519000211, GMA reported.

The recall was posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which says pieces of foam from the headrest pillow could pose a choking hazard to children. Information is on the NHTSA’s list of child seat recalls.

The NHTSA said Columbus Trading-Partners USA Inc “will send a package free of charge with instructions on how to seal the headrest foam. Owner’s notice letters are expected to be sent on May 9, 2022. Owners may contact CTP Customer Service at 1-877-242-5676.

Callers need to know the date of manufacture and model number of their car seat.
