    Britax Responds to CR Article

    Britax Child Safety, Inc. Responds to Consumer Reports Article

    CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Britax Child Safety

    Inc, is a leader and manufacturer in child safety products, which are

    routinely top rated by Consumer Reports. Britax supports the efforts of

    Consumer Reports in providing product information and ratings to consumers.

    We recognize the importance of consumer awareness and would like to address

    the recent article featured in Consumer Reports about the safety and test

    performance of infant car seats, specifically the Britax Companion(R).

    As indicated in the Consumer Reports article the Britax Companion was

    Consumer Reports top-rated seat based on earlier tests that mirrored the

    federal standard. As stated by Consumer Reports, the Britax Companion(R)

    passes the US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Britax would welcome

    the opportunity to review the additional testing and test results designed

    by Consumers Union. Without those details, Britax cannot comment on the

    technical attributes of the article published by Consumer Reports.

    All child seats manufactured and sold by Britax today comply with

    standards set forth by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

    (NHTSA) and undergo extensive testing through in-house and outside test

    laboratories. Additionally, the government independently tests child

    restraints each year to ensure continued compliance by all child seat

    manufacturers. At Britax we are advocates for child passenger safety and

    strive to educate the consumer on the proper installation and use of their

    child seat. To ensure optimal safety all child seats should be installed as

    recommended by both the child seat and vehicle manufacturer.

    As the premium manufacturer of child safety products, Britax remains

    committed to developing innovative products that exceed consumer

    expectations. We are in support of regulations and standards to enhance

    child passenger safety and we will continue to share our experiences with

    the industry regarding performance improvement features and designs.
