Lerado Success, Inc. is recalling over 5000 Mia Moda Viva and Viva Supreme carseats in November 2009. There is a sharp edge near the rear of the seat which can actually cut the harness and in a crash, the carseat would not keep the child safe. Parents need to check the make and model numbers to see if their carseats are affected in this recall.
