What’s the Problem?
A CBS-ProPublica investigation has uncovered serious problems with the Evenflo Big Kid Booster Seat, which Evenflo markets as “safe” for children who weigh 30 pounds pounds or more. However, crash tests revealed that the Evenflo Big Kid Booster performed poorly without the use of a full harness, despite only being sold with a shoulder restraint. Experts do not recommend booster seats until a child has outgrown a 5-point harness car seat.

AAP Booster Seat Recommendations
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children who weigh 40 pounds or less should not be placed in booster seats, and are safer in car seats that use harnesses to hold their small bodies in place.
Evenflo Booster Seat Lawsuit
A products liability lawsuit has been filed against Evenflo Inc. by the parents of a 5 year-old girl who was sitting in a Big Kid booster seat when her car was T-boned. The victim, who only weighed 37 pounds, was paralyzed from the neck down by the side-impact collision. The lawsuit accuses Evenflo of falsely advertising the Big Kid booster seat as “safe” for children over 30 pounds, when crash tests found significant injuries.
