Has anyone heard what car seats are being recalled. I just saw a commerical for my local news saying that there are a whole bunch of car seat recalls. Please let me know if anyone knows which ones or I will try to catch the news. Thanks

It says BABY SEATS and it's the Bumbo. It's being recalled because some people put there kids in it unattended on a table or counter and they fell out! So they are just updating the warning lable for people with no common sense!

Ok, I found on About.com under baby products that the Britax was recalled on Oct. 19, 2007. Could that be it? Here's what it said.... Britax Marathon Recall Oct. 19, 2007 - Britax has issued a recall on its Marathon convertible car seats with model numbers E9L06, E9W06 and E906 that were manufactured between May 23 and July 28, 2006 with a top tether lot number of KGR 01 A. Under some circ_mstances, if a child weighs more than 50 pounds and the vehicle manufacturer allows the use of the top tether above 50 pounds, the top tether hook could open and have the potential to release from the anchor. This could allow the child to move further forward in a crash than is allowed by federal car seat standards. Registered owners will receive a repair kit. Others can visit marathonrecall.com to find out if your car seat is affected.
