Chicco KidFit Booster Seats
Allegations: Misleadingly marketing booster seats as safe for children who weigh 30 pounds and providing protection in side-impact collisions
Sayers et al v. Artsana USA, Inc.
21-cv-1876, E.D. Penn.
Chicco booster seats, including KidFit, KidFit Zip Plus, KidFit Zip Air Plus, and KidFit Adapt Plus
Falsely advertising booster seats as safe for children who weigh 30 pounds when the seats are not safe for children who weigh less than 40 pounds
Misleadingly marketing that booster seats have been side-impact tested and provide protection in side-impact collisions when testing does not show that the seats are safe in side-impact collisions and the seats do not appreciably reduce the risk of serious injury
At issue is company’s distribution of products illegally marketed as drugs.
The case may be resolved but what will deceived consumers get out of the deal?
