Momentum is a hard thing to stop when companies are on the verge of introducing a new product or maintaining a hot selling product, but in 2012, when one of the engineers at Evenflo warned that the company’s popular booster seats could not adequately protect children under 40 pounds and recommended a change, a head executive “vetoed” that recommendation. Not just once, but twice. Keeping up with market competition appeared to be more of a priority than child safety
, according to a recent report by ProPublica.
Unlike the safety test standards run by car manufacturers, which are often published or promoted as part of a strategic marketing campaign, booster seat makers have not done the same with their products. Evenflo competitors, like Graco and Dorel, have faced recent lawsuits after booster seats did not, as advertised, protect their children from harm or fatality as the result of a car accident.
