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?
June 15, 2017 – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced Wednesday that the webbing of affected Graco My Ride 65 car seats failed to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. As a result of this problem, NHTSA said that children may not be appropriately restrained and are at an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
The 25,494 Graco My Ride 65 seats recalled were manufactured from May 2014 to August 2014. Model numbers include 1871689, 1908152, 1813074, 1872691, 1853478, 1877535, 1813015 and 1794334.
Note: only units with a webbing code tag of 2014/06 are affected by the recall.
“In the event of a serious motor vehicle crash, the harness webbing restraining the child may break resulting in a child not being properly restrained,” NHTSA said
If your Graco car seat is affected by the recall, you can go to www.gracobaby.com/myride-harness-recall/ to order a free replacement kit.
“While waiting for a replacement kit, consumers may continue to use My Ride 65 convertible car seats,” said Danielle Clark, a spokeswoman for Graco’s owner, Newell Brands.
