U.S. car seat adaptors recalled over fall hazards Add to ...

Phil&teds of Fort Collins, Colorado, is recalling almost 400 car seat adaptors because they can crack and become a fall hazard for infants, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Wednesday.

The phil&teds Travel System 26 adaptors are used to fix infant car seats to strollers. They are made of two pieces of black plastic that attach to the left and right sides of the car seats, the CPSC said in a statement.

The company has gotten two reports of the adaptors cracking and breaking in freezing weather. Cracked pieces can become unstable and break, which could cause infants to fall, the statement said.

About 265 adaptors are being recalled in the United States and 122 in Canada. They were sold for about $40 from April 2013 through March and were made in China.
