Britax B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat 6/2017

Britax Child Safety, Inc., (Britax) is conducting a recall of the chest clip on certain B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35 infant car seat models manufactured between November 1, 2015 and May 31, 2017.

Recall Information

Britax Child Safety, Inc., in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and other regulatory authorities, is conducting a recall of the chest clip on certain B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35 infant car seat models manufactured between November 1, 2015 and May 31, 2017.

Britax determined that the center tab on the chest clip of certain infant car seat models can break presenting a choking hazard to an infant in the car seat. There have been no choking injuries. We're announcing the recall out of an abundance of caution. The affected child safety seats have a center tab on the chest clip marked "ABS" that may break. The broken tab may present a choking hazard to an infant in the car seat, increasing the risk of injury. Britax will notify owners and will provide a replacement chest clip marked "PC", free of charge. Prents can continue to safely use the affected car seats if they remove the chest clip or monitor the center tab of the chest clip for signs of breakage. The chest clip is not a required safety device: it is added to the harness system to help position the shoulder straps.
