G2 Car Seat Bases are being recalled by Orbit Baby because of a potential injury hazard posed. A total of 2,962 bases are being recalled, and each will have a model number of ORB 822000 and a batch number of A0880, A0860, or A0840. Each of these products will have a StrongArm Knob responsible for securing the unit; unfortunately, this component could end up spinning or detaching completely. When that occurs, the child would not be properly protected should a crash occur, and thus there is a greater chance of injury. The recall should start at some point this month, so owners should start hearing from the company soon. A repair kit will be provided to affected persons.
