Tires, Car Seats Top NHTSA’s Defective Products Recall List

By Grant Law Office on February 14, 2012

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently announced two recalls that may affect hundreds of drivers in Georgia and across the United States. Both tire manufacturer Toyo and car seat manufacturer Britax have coordinated with the NHTSA to alert consumers about possible car product defects.

Toyo sold its Extensa A/S series tires between September 2009 and November 2010, but is now recalling them because a manufacturing defect in the tire can cause it to go flat. A sudden flat while driving may cause the vehicle to swerve out of control, especially in a high-speed environment like a freeway. Toyo offers information on how to get these tires replaced free of charge through its toll-free number, 1(800) 442-8696. NHTSA also offers the information on its website, www.safercar.gov.

Britax’s “Chaperone” line of child safety seats was sold between September 2010 and April 2011, but these seats have defective straps that can come loose, allowing the child to fall or escape from the seat which increases the risk of child injury. Britax will send a free repair kit to families who own the affected car seats. Families can request the repair kit by calling 1(888) 427-4829 or visiting www.britaxusa.com.
