Evenflo 'Big Kid' booster seats bear incorrect weight use information
February 3, 2006
Transport Canada is warning consumers
that certain Evenflo “Big Kid” booster
seats sold at Wal-Mart stores across the
country carry tags with incorrect weight
The products do not include product tag
information stating that the minimum weight
for use of seats must be 18 kg (40 lb).
These units mistakenly include a tag attached
to the cloth pad that indicates a minimum
weight for use of 13.7 kg (30 lb).
Should an underweight child be placed
in the booster cushion and the vehicle
is involved in a crash, the child may have
a greater risk of injury.
The affected models and model numbers
- Big Kid Quantum Booster:
- Big Kid Everest Booster:
Owners of affected
booster cushions should remove and discard
the point-of-purchase tag, and they should
NOT use this or any booster cushion until
their child is at least 18 kg (40 pounds).

product usage, please check the product
