So, Consumer Reports is recalling its recent car seat impact study. My question: Given that the lab Consumer Reports used apparently wrongly conducted the side impact tests at 70 mph, not the federally required 38 mph, how in the world did that happen?
Either way, I’m sure the news has made private equity firm Harvest Partners happy. It purchased Evenflo, one of the largest infant car seat manufacturers, back in 2004, and that company’s products did not do well in the flawed CR tests. Now, however, all is well in the world.
