Additional information:
Transport Canada (“TC”) reports various Dorel Child Car Seats may not comply with Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) 213 – Child Restraint Systems. During manufacturer testing, the plastic seat shell cracked, allowing the recalled Child Car Seat’s seat back to recline excessively and increase the risk of injury from impact forces being transferred to the child during a crash. For the Enspira 65 model specifically, this crack also exposed sharp edges that could increase the risk of injury to a child occupant, or a parent/caregiver manipulating the car seat.

According to Transport Canada, the following Child Car Seats are subject to this recall:

  • Safety 1st Enspira 65; model year: 2012
  • Safety 1st Guide 65; model year: 2012
  • Safety 1st Cruise Air 65; model year: 2012
  • Safety 1st Cruise Air Lx 65; model year: 2012
  • Eddie Bauer Xrs 65; model year: 2012

About Hepatitis A:
Hepatitis A is a serious contagious liver disease that results from infection with the Hepatitis A virus (“HAV”). Disease symptoms can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months. All HAV infections require medical attention and possible in-patient hospital treatment. Hepatitis A is usually spread when a person ingests fecal matter — even in microscopic amounts — from contact with objects, food or drinks contaminated by the feces (or stool) of an infected person.

Symptoms of Hepatitis A typically manifest themselves within 15 to 50 days of exposure and can include fatigue, abdominal pain, jaundice (yellowing of some body tissues including the “whites” of the eyes), abnormal liver tests, dark urine and pale stool.

Hepatitis A is a human-based disease and typically occurs when an infected food handler prepares food without appropriate hygiene. In rare cases, particularly in patients with pre-existing severe illnesses or compromised immune systems, HAV infection can progress to full-blown liver failure and death. Persons with underlying liver conditions should be vaccinated as soon as possible by an MD or other health care professional and appropriate symptom relief and other treatment modalities applied.
