HAS YOUR CHILD BEEN INJURED BY AN INFANT CAR SEAT?
Certain recalled Dorel car seat models has caused severe injuries due to a defective restraint handle that self releases. There have been many reported head and other major injuries due to this defect. As a result, the United States Consumer Products Safety Commission publicly announced a recall of 36 Dorel infant car seat models.
These car seats, manufactured in China and distributed throughout the United States were sold under the following brand names:
- BABY TREND
- Eddie Bauer
- Kiddy USA
- Peg Perego
- Safety 1st
- Triple Play
The infant car seats that were recalled were manufactured from January 2008 through April 2009.
These are forward facing car seats. In 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that children use rear facing car seats until age two. Children under two should not be placed in forward facing car seats. We believe Dorel was reckless by failing to warn of the danger in placing children under two years old in a forward facing car seat.
Additional car seat Models and Manufacturers have also been recalled. If your child was injured due to a car seat call us or review the list of recalled models.
