I noticed this recall in my email, and as you know, we don’t typically post an article about every recall but when it comes to bigger items and massive recalls like car seats and cribs I try to bring it up. I know how busy we all mare being parents or grandparents that sometimes these things go unnoticed, so I wanted to post it before the holiday madness. This latest recall involves 447,000+ car seats made by Dorel Juvenille Group which includes the following brands: Safety 1st, Cosco, Eddie Bauer and Disney branded infant car seat/carriers. You can check your particular seat against the list of model numbers on the CPSC website.
The recall is for infant seats/carriers and involvesthe child restraint handle on the seats which can loosen and come off, posing a fall hazard to infants. The CPSC suggests not using the seat until receiving a repair kit from the Dorel Juvenille Group.
