Recaro has issued a voluntary recall of Tian Core and Tian Elite car seats sold since August 2020.

The manufacturer has identified a fault with the seats, which could prevent the harness from working as it should.

In a statement, Recaro said: "The recall is due to possible interference between the harness system and the internal components of the child restraint system.

"This may cause difficulties when adjusting the harness and, in some cases, the potential loss of integrity of the harness system during the adjustment process.

"The involved units can be easily identified through the type approval number (A) and the serial number (B) on the orange homologation label that can be found under the seat."

It applies to seats made between August 2020 until October 27, 2020. Customers can check affected model numbers at:

Car seats manufactured after October 27, 2020 are not affected.

Recaro added: "We are committed to ensuring user safety and meeting the highest quality standards, and advise consumers who have purchased one of the affected car seats to stop using it with immediate effect.

"Recaro will collect the affected car seat and provide consumers with either a comparable replacement Recaro car seat free of charge or a full refund.

"To arrange this, please contact the Recaro Customer Service team at, or Service Hotline +39 0 245467-740 providing your contact details and the car seat type approval number and serial number."
