Peg Perego Canada Inc. and Transport Canada wish to inform the public of an error in both the English instruction manual and the French instruction manual provided with the Primo Viaggio infant carrier produced between February 1, 2004 and May 2, 2007, inclusively. The date of manufacture can be found on a label located on the seat.
Page 6 of the English manual and page 11 of the French version of the instruction manual refer to the weights allowable for usage. The English manual states that the restraint may be used for infants "9 kg or less". The French manual states "pour des enfants dont le poids maximum est de 9 kg." The labelling on the infant carriers states that the restraint may be used for infants between 2.3 kg and 9 kg. The labelling is correct.
In addition, page 5 of the English instruction manual and page 9 of the French instruction manual state compliance to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213. This is the American standard. The instruction manual should state compliance to Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.1 in English and "à la norme de sécurité des véhicules automobiles du Canada 213.1" in French. The labelling is correct.
The instruction manual has been revised with the correct information.
Peg Perego Canada Inc. and Transport Canada wish to inform all parents and caregivers of the error so as to eliminate any possibility of confusion when following the installation instructions.
Consumers may call the Peg Perego Canada Inc. helpline at 1-800-661-5050 to request a free copy of the revised instruction manual, or the revised instruction manual may be downloaded at www.pegperego.com.
