Update: Britax Recalls 200,000 Car Seats for Choking Hazard
June 22, 2017 – Britax Child Safety is recalling several models of its B-Safe infant car seats for a potential defect with the chest clip that keeps a child restrained. Affected models include Britax B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35. Recalled car seats can be fixed using a free kit that can be provided by Britax.
What’s the Problem?
November 15, 2010 – This month, Britax announced a recall of its Chaperone car seats. The company has found that certain models of the Chaperone car seats manufactured between April 2009 and May 2010 have a chest clip that was incorrectly produced. According to the recall notice:
“This could result in a “more brittle chest clip than was intended. As a result, the chest clip which positions the harness straps across the infants shoulders may break when the chest clip is engaged as the infant is secured into the infant car seat. The sharp edges of the broken chest clip could create a risk of a skin laceration and the fractured components of the chest clip may present a choking hazard.”
