Orbit Baby Car Seat
Made famous by health-conscious celebrity moms, Orbit marketed several car seat-stroller combos as the first green car seat to contain “undetectable” levels of toxic chemicals.
However, a recent CBS investigation discovered the car seats tested positive for chlorinated Tris, a chemical commonly used as a flame retardant despite its recognition as a dangerous carcinogen.
Orbit has since changed some of its claims on its website.
Federal laws mandate that child car seats be made with fire retardant materials – but many of the chemicals in these materials have been linked to cancer, neurological disorders and developmental complications.
Independent labs have discovered harmful chemicals in roughly 75-percent of all car seats but Orbit was the only company to claim they had “undetectable levels,” a report claims.
