Safety Alert: 447,000 Infant Car Seats Recalled

Attention mamas: On Friday, December 18, 447,000 popular infant car seats were recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the Dorel Juvenile Group, Inc. The recall came after 77 separate reports were made about faulty bolts on the child restraint handles of over 40 different models. Loose bolts caused the handles to partially -- or in some cases fully -- break loose from the car seat base, causing injuries to at least three babies.

Wondering if your car seat is involved in the recall? Here's the full list:
