Car Seat Recall

If you don’t subscribe to the CPSC
href="http://www.cpsc.gov/cpsclist.asp">automatic emails
notifying you when a product’s been recalled, I encourage you
to sign up today. I get a lot of emails from them about
children’s products and don’t pass most of them on to
you – it’d be almost a full-time blog. But one came
through today that I thought worth passing on.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission and National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration announced a recall today of the Evenflo
Embrace Infant Car Seat/Carriers. They estimate it’s about
450,000 units to come back, which apparently has a handle that can
unexpectedly release, allowing the seat to rotate and the child to
fall to the ground. Almost 700 injuries have been reported,
including skull fractures and concussions, so if you own this
product please check in right away. Here are the contact numbers:

Evenflo Recall Hotline: (800) 490-7497

NHTSA Recall Hotline: (888) 327-4236

CPSC Hotline: (800) 638-2772

And as I said before, if you don’t already, sign up for the
CPSC recall emails. You can choose to have just children’s
recalls sent to you so your mailbox doesn’t get too clogged
up. I think you’ll agree it’s worth it!
