Chaperone Infant Car Seats Recalled

Comments (0)
More than 14,200 Chaperone infant car seats have been recalled, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The safety seats, manufactured by Britax Child Safety Inc. have a defective rivet in the harness adjuster that can cause the harness to detach from the seat. Whe the adjuster comes loose, the straps will not properly restrain infants during a crash.

Chaperone seats with model numbers E9L692J, E9L692L and E9L692M cna be unsafe. The affected car seats were manufactured between September 1, 2010 and April 30, 2011. If you own a recalled car seat, stop using it immediately and contact the manufacturer

Keeping children sfety is of the utmost importance. This recall, and others like it, should not be taken lightly. Even the safest of car seats aren't always used correctly. NHTSA estimates that 80percent of child restraints are used incorrectly. But when used correctly, child car seats can reduce the risk of 71 percent for infants and 54 percet for children 1-4 years old. The devices also reduce the need for hospitalization by 69 percent for children ages 4 and under.

If you or someone you know owns one of the recalled car seats and have children who were injured in an accident, consider consulting a personal ijury attorney. Your children deserve to be protected.
