In a recent development, Health Canada has issued a stern warning regarding Rojada Child Safety Seats commonly used in motor vehicles. The agency’s findings have raised serious concerns about the safety of these restraints in the event of a collision.
Health Canada’s investigation revealed alarming safety concerns associated with these restraints. It was determined that the use of the Rojada Child Safety Seats in a motor vehicle could significantly increase the risk of injury during a collision. Notably, these restraints do not bear Transport Canada’s National Safety Mark, indicating that they have not been certified to meet the safety requirements outlined in the Motor Vehicle Restraint Systems and Booster Seats Safety Regulations. Equally concerning is the fact that the use of these restraints in a motor vehicle would be considered illegal under provincial and territorial highway regulations. This raises serious legal implications for those who continue to use these non-compliant safety seats.
Immediate Action Required: For those who possess these affected products, immediate action is crucial. Health Canada strongly advises consumers to cease using these restraints and to dispose of them in a manner that ensures they cannot be reused. Ensuring the safety of your child is paramount, and this step is vital in achieving that. In response to Health Canada’s findings, Amazon.ca has removed the affected product from sale on its platform. Health Canada has also reached out to foreign third-party sellers, advising them to stop the sale of these child safety seats. It’s worth noting that 99 units of the affected product were sold in Canada. Fortunately, no incidents or injuries linked to this product have been reported to Health Canada thus far.
In light of Health Canada’s safety alert, it is of utmost importance that consumers take immediate action to ensure the safety of their children while traveling in motor vehicles. Discontinue the use of these non-compliant child safety seats, stay informed about product recalls, and report any safety incidents promptly. Your child’s safety is non-negotiable, and taking these precautions can make all the difference on the road.
Health Canada’s Commitment to Consumer Safety: Health Canada remains steadfast in its commitment to safeguarding consumers from potentially hazardous consumer products. The department conducts rigorous testing of products available both in physical stores and online, continuously monitoring for potential safety concerns. This vigilance is aimed at ensuring the safety and well-being of all Canadians.
Health Canada recommends that consumers stay vigilant by regularly checking the Healthy Canadians Recalls and Safety Alerts database for updates on potentially dangerous products. If you come across any products of concern, take swift action to remove them from your possession. Furthermore, Health Canada encourages consumers to report any health or safety incidents related to these products or any other consumer items by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form. This proactive reporting helps in identifying and addressing potential risks promptly.
