A consumer safety group reports 60 percent of car seats contain toxic chemicals.

The Ecology Center of Ann Arbor, Michigan, tested more than 150 car seats all from model year 2011. Researchers looked for bromine, chlorine, lead, and other heavy metals and allergens.

The concern is that UV radiation will breakdown the chemicals and that babies and young children are more vulnerable because their body systems are still developing.

The group says some of the most toxic car seats include the 2011 Graco Snugride 35 in Edgemont Red and Black, the Britax Marathon 70 in Jet Set and the Recaro Pro Booster in Blue Opal.

The least toxic cars seats include the 2011 Chicco Keyfit 30 in Limonata. The Graco Comfort Sport in Caleo and the Graco Turbo Booster in Anders.
