For immediate release

OTTAWA - Health Canada is warning Canadians about the dangers of Baby Car Seat Carrier Safety Belts, urging consumers not to buy the product. If the product has been purchased, consumers are urged to immediately stop using the product and dispose of it.

Based on marketplace investigations, the Baby Car Seat Carrier Safety Belts are not believed to be available in retail stores in Canada, but can be purchased online through, an online shopping site.

The Baby Car Seat Carrier Safety Belts do not contain Transport Canada's National Safety Mark and therefore have not been certified to meet the safety requirements of the Motor Vehicle Restraint Systems and Booster Seats Safety Regulations (RSSR). Under Canada's Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA), Health Canada prohibits or restricts the advertising, sale and importation of hazardous products in Canada.

Consumers and health professionals wanting more information about this advisory from Health Canada can contact the Public Enquiries Line at 613-957-2991, or toll free at 1-866-225-0709.
