Auto seat and stroller manufacturer Britax announced this week that it is recalling more than 200,000 vehicle seats after customers reported that seats' chest clips can break, posing a choking hazard for young children.
The company notes that the infant auto seats remain safe in a crash, and that while the term "recall" is being used, the entire seat does not need to be replaced. The recall was expected to begin June 21, 2017.
Britax also has produced a video with instructions on replacing the clip.
The Fix: Britax will provide a more durable replacement chest clip marked "PC" for free.
No other products are included in this recall.
The recalled models include the Britax B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35 with manufacture dates from November 1,2015 to May 31,2017.
