Did you buy a booster seat from a Canadian Tire?

0

Transport Canada and Canadian Tire Corporation, Ltd wish to inform the public of non-compliances of booster seats imported by Canadian Tire.  Specifically, neither the Apramo nor the Kukuxumusu branded booster seats meet the stiffness requirements of the Motor Vehicle Restraint Systems and Booster Seats Safety Regulations.  Furthermore, the Kukuxumusu branded booster seats do not conform to the flammability requirements of the Motor Vehicle Restraint Systems and Booster Seats Safety Regulations. Transport Canada’s compliance testing program revealed these concerns and notified the company.  The regulations require booster seats to comply with a test that measures their stiffness.  If a booster seat does not meet this requirement, there is an increased risk of injury in the event of a vehicle collision.  Additionally, in the event of a vehicle fire, the fabric covers of the Kukuxumusu booster seats may not self-extinguish or may burn too quickly, accelerating the spread of the fire. Canadian Tire is issuing a consumer recall and a withdrawal order instructing stores to return any remaining units to Canadian Tire Corporation for disposal. Canadian Tire will contact known customers of the affected product and will post signs in stores alerting consumers of the recall and will be issuing refunds to all consumers that return affected models. Consumers should discontinue use of their product once they have obtained an alternative booster seat and return the affected product to the store. All Canadian Tire stores have been instructed to refund any consumer who returns their booster seat.   Apramo: Model Name: NB BOOSTER SEAT Model Number: 046-6045 (K11-1618CTC) Model Name: NB BOOSTER PROMO Model Number: 199-5607 (K11-1631CTC) Manufactured from September 2013 to September 2015 Kukuxumusu: Model Name: KUKU BOOSTER BLUE Model Number: 046-0735 (KU20143CM) Model Name: KUKU BOOSTER PINK Model Number: 046-0736 (KU20153CM) Manufactured from February 2013 to September 2015 [author ]Transport Canada and Canadian Tire Corporation, Ltd[/author]
