Trump’s proposed ban on ‘brita car seats’ goes into effect December 1, 2018
Posted On June 15, 2021
President Donald Trump has announced his plans to ban the use of Brita’s car seats in public vehicles, and the Department of Transportation (DOT) has issued a bulletin warning drivers not to use Brita cars as car seats.
“This ban on Brita seats will take effect on December 1st, 2018,” the DOT tweeted in a message on Wednesday morning.
“Buses will continue to be able to carry Brita vehicles on their trunks.”
Brita, the manufacturer of the seat, had warned on social media earlier this month that its “britain car seats will no longer be available for public transport” after Trump’s tweet.
The tweet prompted thousands of Britas tweeters to take to Twitter to voice their opposition to the ban.
“They’re all Brita products.
I’ve been using Brita for 20 years and never had a problem,” one user tweeted.”
Brita are a big part of my life, they are my first choice, my only choice,” another user tweeted, adding: “Brita is a great brand, and they are a family company.”
The DOT also warned drivers not use Britas own car seat brand, Bose, in public places.
“As of today, Brita car seat products will no more be available to purchase in the United States,” the agency tweeted.
“Britas car seat brands will continue as they have for decades.”
Trump’s executive order is expected to affect approximately 500,000 Brita, Britax, and other car seat manufacturers.
In addition to banning the use Britanas own seat, the ban will prevent companies from selling the seat at retailers and through third-party vendors.
