Heads Up Parents – Popular Car Seats Recalled Over Choking Hazard
After discovering that their chest clips can create a serious choking hazard for babies and toddlers, one company is recalling dozens of models.
About 207,000 of Britax infant B-Safe car seats' chest clips can break off, putting little ones in serious danger and can pose a major choking hazard to the infant.
The recall involves parts on certain B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite, and BOB B-Safe 35 infant car seats.
They were manufactured between November 1, 2015, and May 31, 2017.
The company is sending a free remedy kit to owners who have registered their product. If you've previously registered your car seat with Britax, the kit will be automatically sent to you. However, if you have an unregistered recalled car seat, contact Britax at (833) 474-7016 for a safe clip.
Below is a video from the Britax website that explains how to switch out the clip for replacement:
