Did you hear? Evenflo Company, Inc. just announced that they are recalling more than 56,000 Transitions 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seats. The booster seat is being recalled because the child can loosen the seat's harness, while in the car seat, which could lead to an increased risk of injury to the child in the event of a crash.
Parents learn of car seat information through a variety of trusted sources. The information may or may not reflect best practice but can grab attention because it sounds so easy to do and uses simple language. Safe Kids CPS Training Manager and Technical Advisor Lorrie Walker weighs in on the matter.
