Popular Car Seats Found to Contain Dangerous Flame Retardant

CBS News reports that the foam in car seats are key to protecting a child in an accident but that “federal law mandates seats be made with fire retardant materials – many of which are linked to cancer, neurological disorders and developmental delays.” CBS explains that “Orbit Baby introduced the first car seat that claimed to contain undetectable amounts of the most concerning chemicals.” However, tests conducted by a research lab at Duke University found that it tested positive for a form of Tris known as TDCPP. Meanwhile, “the Michigan-based Ecology Center tested an Orbit G-3 toddler car seat using multiple labs and found another form of Tris.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
