Expert Says Report's Invalidation Shows Child Seats Safe

Child seat specialists at the Mesa County Health Department say they haven't had anyone call them in the wake of Consumer Reports magazine's retraction of a child safety seat article yesterday.

Consumer Reports had initially rated nearly every child seat tested as inadequate, but later determined that a contractor had tested the seats at twice the impact speed required by the federal government.
an expert at the Health Department says the retraction shows federal standards are adequate.

If you have questions about your child's car safety seat you can call the Mesa County Child Passenger Safety Line. That number is 254–4112.
