With just days before Christmas, another recall involving a child product has been announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. This time the product in question involves Dorel Infant Car Seat/Carriers. About 447,000 units have been recalled. The CPSC says that when used as an infant carrier, the child restraint handle to the seat can loosen and come off, posing a fall hazard to infants.
The Dorel Infant carriers are manufactured in China, but distributed out of Columbus, Indiana. The company has received 77 reports of the child restraint coming off causing at least three injuries to babies, including bumps, bruises and at least one head injury. The products were sold at various stores nationwide from January 2008 through December 2009. The model number and manufacture date are located on a label on the side of the care seat/carrier. Brand names include Cosco, Eddie Bauer and Disney.
