Clek Inc. has found that the warning labels placed on some covers or headrests may bubble or lift at the edge, making it easier to peel off.

An infant may peel off small pieces of the labels and put them into their mouth. This also makes the warning labels harder to read.

This notice only affects Clek Liing and Clek Liingo infant car seats with black "carbon" fabric cover or insert headrests.

Safety Risk:

Infants could choke on a small piece of the warning label taken from the cover or headrest.

Clek told Transport Canada about this issue after receiving reports of warning labels peeling or being peeled off on a few seats. There are currently no reports of choking or any other any injury in either Canada or the U.S.

Company Action:

Clek will send a repair kit to owners of affected infant car seats. The kit will include fabric with securely attached warning labels.

Consumer Recourse:

Clek will notify all registered owners of affected infant car seats. This notice will explain the issue and include instructions for how to get a free kit to fix the issue.

If you haven't registered your infant car seat, or if you've moved, contact Clek to get a free repair kit. Make sure you have this information on hand when you contact Clek:

  • your infant car seat's serial number
  • it's date of manufacture
  • an image that shows the peeling label, and
  • your updated mailing address.

You can contact Clek:

Clek has said that it's safe to use your infant car seat while waiting to receive a kit to fix the issue.

Once you receive the kit, replace the original fabric cover or insert headrest with the replacement part by following the included instructions. Don't return your car seat to a store or to Clek.
