Nearly 800,000 Dorel Child-Safety Seats Are Recalled

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost 800,000 child seats are “being recalled because their harnesses may not hold the child securely.” (C. Jensen, NY Times Wheels, 2/14). As a Chicago personal injury attorney, I encourage parents to act swiftly to ensure their children’s safety.

The recall covers a “wide range of booster, convertible and infant seats, including some sold as part of a stroller travel system, made by the Dorel Juvenile Group of Columbus, Ind.” The recall was triggered by the NHTSA, after an investigation resulting from nearly 150 consumer complaints that the restraining straps had loosened over time.

The restraints were sold “under the brand names Safety 1st, Maxi-Cosi, Cosco and Eddie Bauer.” They were manufactured from May 1, 2008 to April 30, 2009. A list of the affected models can be found .
