Britax has recalled more than 200,000 of their B-Safe infant car seats because the attached chest clip contains a defect that could pose a choking hazard. The recall affects certain B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35 infant car seat models that were manufactured between November 1, 2015 and May 31, 2017.
What should you do? To determine if your car seat is included in the recall, visit the Britax recall website and enter your product's serial number.
If your car seat is affected, you can continue to safely use the product as long as you remove the chest clip or monitor the center tab of the chest clip for signs of breakage. Britax states that the chest clip is not a required safety device: it is added to the harness system to help position the shoulder straps.
If you have an affected car seat and have previously registered your product with Britax, you will automatically be a sent a kit to replace the dangerous chest clip. If you have an unregistered car seat, you can contact Britax to be sent a safe clip by calling 1-833-474-7016.
