Vehicles Affected: Approximately 4,600 Wayb Pico car seats manufactured between March 1 and May 12, 2019

The Problem: The headrest’s aluminum tubular frame can break, allowing the headrest to detach, increasing the risk of injury during a crash.

The Fix: A plan to replace the headrest was still under development.

Owners can call the car-seat maker at 888-924-9292, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to learn more. To make sure you’re contacted about recalls, register your car seat.
