Infant car seat recalls have been issued because some products were causing the following injuries to children:
- Cuts & Scrapes
- Choking Hazards
- Skull Fractures

As a result of some terrible incidents, several infant car seat recalls have been made over the years. In May of 2007, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued infant car seat recalls Evenflo Embrace infant car seats and carriers. Evenflo received 679 reports of the handle on the car seat unexpectedly releasing which resulted in 160 injuries to children ranging from skull fractures to concussions.
An injury to a child is any parent’s greatest fear. It is particularly troubling when something you have entrusted to protect your child is actually responsible for causing them harm. While an infant car seat recall may prevent future incidents, it can never repair the harm that has already been done. D.
