I would take the Choice testing with a grain of salt. They have one person testing these products once every two or three years (in amongst hundreds of other products). They are not what I would consider experts. Refer to Uppababy’s comment above: The manufacturer disputes our findings and has provided us with an independent test report stating that it has passed all relevant safety requirements and product safety standards. So how can Choice say it fails?
If there were a REAL hazard, all these products would be recalled and not allowed on the market. Think about it. Millions of Uppababys are sold every year.
ALSO remember that Choice is a revenue-based business. They must be controversial to encourage subscribers and revenue. They operate based on instilling fear in consumers and anxiety. No media publication loves a story more than one like this, again because it encourages website traffic, engagement and again revenue.
Just being devils advocate here. Think of ulterior motives! At the end of the day don’t be too sucked into all the hype and use good judgement and rely on a range of opinions from friends and family, online reviews, choice (as part of your overall evaluation if you value choice’s opinion) and other sources.
