June 30, 2020 – Shub Law Firm LLC is currently investigating Graco Children’s Products, Inc. for allegedly misrepresenting to consumers that their Booster Seats are safe for children under 40 pounds, when in fact, their representations regarding safety and testing are false and misleading. The Graco booster seat models in question are the Affix and TurboBooster models.
Graco Children’s Products, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Defendant Newell Brands DTC, Inc. and designs, manufactures, markets, sells, and distributes the Booster Seats throughout the United States. Graco claims that their Booster Seats will “help to protect your little one in frontal, side, rear & rollover crashes.” However, these claims are a lie. A Class Action Lawsuit recently filed in the Northern District of Georgia alleges that Graco uses language on their website designed to engender trust from parents so that they will rely on Defendants’ misrepresentations about the safety of their products, including the Booster Seats. The Complaint further alleges that Graco makes these representations despite knowing that their Booster Seats are unsafe. “The truth is, for Graco, profit is the top priority.”
Graco claims that they place a priority on safety, but they have falsely represented to consumers that children less than 40 pounds would be safe riding in their Booster Seats, and that the Booster Seats provided side-impact protection proven safe by Graco’s side-impact testing. Yet, young children have been paralyzed and killed from a side impact collision while riding in their Booster Seats.
