If You Purchased a Chicco “KidFit” Booster Seat Between April 22, 2015 and December 31, 2021, You May Be Eligible for a Payment of Up to $50 Under a Class Action Settlement
The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York has preliminarily approved a class action settlement that may affect your legal rights.
Here's what you need to know.
First, let's start with what the Chicco KidFit Child Booster Seat is. This booster seat is designed for children who have outgrown their forward-facing car seats but are still too small for a seat belt to fit properly. The KidFit features a backrest and a bottom cushion to position your child correctly in the car's seat. The booster seat also includes features such as side-impact protection, a shoulder belt guide, and a headrest that adjusts in multiple positions.
Now, let's talk about the class-action settlement. The settlement involves a lawsuit filed against Chicco alleging that the KidFit booster seat's design and marketing were misleading and false. The lawsuit claimed that Chicco falsely advertised that the KidFit booster seat met or exceeded federal safety standards, which was not the case.
- A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit involving Artsana USA, Inc.’s (“Defendant”) Chicco-branded “KidFit” booster seats.
