After all the infant car seat hubbub raised by Consumer Reports earlier this month, the publication is now calling for a “do over.”
Turns out, the testers may have simulated crashes at higher speeds than claimed in the report–which means the seats deemed unsafe may actually be perfectly fine for your baby.
Or not. Who knows?
In the meantime, your guess is as good as mine which seat is actually, really, and truly safe. CR advises us to “suspend judgment on the merits of individual products until the new testing has been completed and the report re-published.”
Maybe I’ll also suspend judgment on the trustworthiness of Consumer Reports‘ “boy who cried wolf” freak-out reports.
