In January 2017, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Dorel Juvenile Group for allegedly misleadingly marketing Cosco Apt Car Seats (specifically, the Cosco Apt 40 Convertible Car Seat and the Cosco Apt 50 Convertible Car Seat) as suitable for children who weigh 5-40 pounds and are 19”- 40” tall when the seat is facing the rear, and for children who weigh 22-40 pounds and are 34”- 43” tall when the seat is facing forward when, in reality, the car seats do not accommodate children up to these advertised height and weight limits.

, Case No. 17-cv-180, C. D. CA.)
