From Britax’s Facebook Page: Because we’re committed to creating the safest products for children, Britax is conducting a voluntary safety recall on its Chaperone Infant Car Seat. The chest clip supplied with the Chaperone Infant Car Seat was incorrectly produced by the manufacturer which resulted in a more brittle chest clip than was intended. As a result, the chest clip which positions the harness straps across the infant’s shoulders may break when the chest clip is engaged as the infant is secured into the car seat. For more information about this recall, including which models are affected, and how to receive a remedy kit, please visit www.ChaperoneSeatRecall.com, or call Britax Customer Service at 1-888-427-4829.
If you have an affected car seat, looks like it’s a quick fix – but please, be diligent: check your model and order the remedy kit if necessary.
