Most Infant Car Seats Flunk Crash Tests, Consumer Reports: Many Performed ‘Disastrously’; Only Two Made Grade – CBS News

In a report that’s leaving Infant Car Seat manufacturers reeling, Consumer Reports is reporting that most car seats for infants fail miserably and in some cases should be immediately recalled.

CBS: “The seats came off their bases or twisted in place, the report said. In one case, a test dummy was hurled 30 feet.

Of the 12 car seats tested, Consumer Reports said it could recommend only two, and it urged a federal recall of the poorest performing seat.”
