Over at the CALPIRG blog, consumer advocate Jon Fox explains why CALPIRG (KGO video interview), U.S. PIRG, Kids In Danger and other leading groups have asked the Consumer Product Safety Commission, in a letter, to recall the Bumbo baby seat. Previous remedial actions, including labeling the seat with warnings, haven't prevented an alarming number of injuries, including over thirty skull fractures. Full letter at Jon's blog. Excerpt from the letter from U.S. PIRG, Consumer Federation of America, Consumers Union, Kids in Danger and Public Citizen follows:

"CPSC is now aware of 33 skull fractures. According to CPSC data there have been 95 additional injuries since the 2007 recall. Fifty of these injuries occurred while the product was used on the floor as recommended or its use position was unclear.  There are two recent postings to SaferProducts.gov listing injuries from the product as well.  Warning labels have generally been shown to be ineffective in reducing injuries and that is specifically evident with this product as well."

Let's hope more of them get caught when they cheat. www.qualitydumps.com/

Rarest of the three Wildcat body styles was the convertible, which saw a production run of 6,021. The coupe, with double the output, was more popular. Most often purchased, however, was the hardtop sedan.

For 1964, the Wildcat series was expanded to include a fourth body style, a four-door pillared sedan. Bodies and powertrain went largely unchanged, although an optional 425-cubic-inch V-8 rated at 340 or 360 horsepower became available. Borrowed from the Riviera, they were called the Wildcat 465 (for the torque rating) and Super Wildcat, respectively.
