Allegations in the Class Action Lawsuit Against Graco and Newell Brands
When it began to sell its Turbobooster car seat in 2002, Graco marketed the product to parents as being safe for children as young as three years old and weighing as little as 30 pounds. At that time, however, regulations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) made it clear that booster seats were NOT recommended for children under 40 pounds, and that any child under 40 pounds would not be adequately protected in a booster seat.
The evidence suggests that Graco was well aware of this limit but marketed its booster seat for use by smaller children, despite knowing that those smaller children faced increased risk in a car booster seat. Graco also claimed that its booster seats were side-impact tested even though the NHTSA published no side-impact standards or tests for child booster seats.
Based on these alleged misrepresentations, parents may have purchased car seats for their children that were not as safe as advertised.
