important MiaModa Viva child car seats recall information.
MiaModa Viva and Viva Supreme Car Seats
Dates: December 19, 2006 - February 7, 2007
MiaModa, Model Viva, Infant Restraint Systems or the Separately Sold Bases Manufactured
between December 19, 2006, and February 6, 2007. In certain motor vehicles,
the lower anchor connector adjuster assembly may interfere with the connection
of the infant carrier to the base.
the harness splitter plate, located on the rear of
the seat, has sharp edges that can cut the seat's harness. Also, the base could
crack in a crash. If a crash were to occur, a child wouldn't be adequately restrained
and could be injured or killed. The recall affects model Nos. 5000, 5001, 5050,
5051, 5070, 5071, 5080 and 5081.
cards were not provided with the Viva Infant Restraint System or the separately
sold bases which fails to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard
no. 213, Child Restraint Systems.
Unless all connection points (two in front and two in rear) are firmly connected,
in the event of a severe vehicle crash, the restraint carrier may detach from
the base, possibly resulting in serious injury or death to the child. Also,
without registration cards, owners may fail to register their infant restraint
system with the manufacturer, making it difficult to notify them in the event
of a future recall.
MIAMODA will notify owners and mail a repair kit along
with repair instructions and a registeration form free of charge. Owners can
contact MIAMODA at 1-877-546-8437, or go to Viva
Car Seat Recall page to determine if they have a child restraint that is
affected, and to register.
