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.
