No Joyride!

Having caused nearly 100 injuries ranging from skull fractures, concussions, and a broken leg to minor scratches and bruises, the Evenflo “Joyride” has been recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The injuries occurred when the seat was used as an infant carrier and the handle unexpectedly released.

Those with the car seat should contact Evenflo at 1-800-557-3178 or http://www.cpsc.gov. But this problem is not limited to Evenflo. This is the fifth multi-use baby seat recall in just the last 2 years.

I recommend visiting the CPSC website often. ( http://www.cpsc.gov) often. The CPSC is dedicated to keeping families safe.
