Infant Seats for Shopping Carts Recalled

Date:
March 1, 2006

Car Seats
Company/Brand:
SSC
The Danger:
These seats can have a white chalky powder or residue on their surface. It is the UV Absorber that has separated from the seat due to a molding defect that affected some seats produced in one or more molding runs. This could cause skin irritation to children who come into contact with the residue.
Description:
This recall involves about 4,000 gray or red infant seats that are permanently attached to shopping carts in retail stores. "SAFE-SEAT+" is molded into the side of these seats. A metal tube around the frame of the seat attaches it to the shopping cart.
Sold At:
