Car Seats Expire???
I just found this out after calling Peg Perego to find out if a Latch Car Seat Base I have is compatible with the newer Primo Viaggio car seats. The customer representative at Peg Perego actually said they have 5-year expiration dates on all their car seats and bases due to modifications and upgrades in safety requirements.
(Obviously, you will want to check with your car seat or base manufacturer for their specific expiration dates, as this is the expiration date information just for Peg Perego.)
So instead of attempting to sell the extra car seat base we found, I just have to throw it in the trash. This seems wasteful, but apparently, it is the safest thing to do.
As with all baby products, I guess you are always best served when you do your research first!
