Canadian Recall: Learning Curve VIA I470C Rear Facing Only Car Seat

(Last Updated On: )

The Via has been sold under the Lamaze and First Years brand names.

Independent testing has revealed that the seat does not pass required standard with regard to force to the head and chest.  In addition, the recline foot may loosen in an impact, introducing slack to the installation, increasing the injury risk.

This is a serious life-safety recall.    Caregivers should immediately stop using the seat and dispose of it so that it cannot be reused.

See Transport Canada for further information.
