According to a number of news outlets, certain child car seats are being recalled over possible laceration and choking hazards.
The recall announcement was first published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and according to the statement, Britax has decided to issue this recall alert following discoveries that certain models of infant car seats designed to restrain the child and keep it safe could have quite the opposite affect.
According to the firm’s statement, Chaperone 9L69P5 CowMoo, E9L69N9 Moonsto, E9L69P2 Red Mil and E9L69P3 Savanna were equipped with chest clips that may be more brittle than what the company originally intended. If the chest clip responsible for the positioning of these child seats’ harness straps break unexpectedly, the child could become promptly unsafely restrained. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has also stated that the chest clips could shatter and the child could attempt to swallow one of the components.
To prevent injuries in the future and keep children from choking, the company has claimed that all registered owners of these recalled models of child seats are receiving a free repair kit to have any defective chest clip replaced for a fully functional and safe item that will ensure your child’s safety.
Consumers and parents are advised they must stop using these recalled restraining infant car seats until the repair kit is shipped. Inquiries related to this recall announcement should be addressed to the firm right away. Hopefully, incidents associated with these recalled infant restraining seats are prevented from happening and all recalled items are repaired at once.
