Is Your Child's Safety Seat Actually Safe

Parents buy child safety seats to protect their children from harm in the case of an accident. And they no doubt serve a vital function. However, recent news regarding the chemical composition of some child safety seats should give parents some caution in selecting the right child safety seat for their family.

Learn the facts., a nonprofit Ecology Center’s website, reported that 73% of children’s car seats contained hazardous halogenated flame retardants and more than half contained non-halogenated organophosphate flame retardants (which can be hazardous as well).

Subsequently, this study found that the flame retardant chemicals (such as bromine and chlorine) and other substitutes used by companies are poorly regulated. This results in higher risk for consumers and questions regarding the fire safety benefits of using such chemicals.

Exposing your children to these chemicals can potentially increase their risk of developing fertility problems, learning impairments, liver toxicity, and cancer (Iallonardo, 2015).

Help to ensure your little ones’ safety by checking the leading companies that were tested in the study. Of these, Britx and Clek have been “proactively implementing” policies that meet all safety standards while still reducing the risks that have been associated with their products. The worst company at implementing these policies was Graco.
