Britax recalls thousands of vehicle seats due to choking hazard

Britax has announced the recall of more than 200,000 infant vehicle seats because a chest clip could break off and become a choking hazard.

The company will notify owners and will provide a replacement chest clip marked "PC", free of charge. If you haven't registered your vehicle seat, visit the recall page to see if your auto seat is affected.

Britax says no choking injuries related to the clip have been reported, although a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration database documents several complaints from parents about the clips breaking.

The recall includes three travel systems: B-Safe 35 & Travel Systems, B-Safe 35 Elite & Travel Systems and BOB B-Safe 35 by Britax, which were manufactured between November 1, 2015 and May 31. Check the company's website for the model numbers of all affected auto seats.

There's a video on the Britax website that explains how to switch out the clip for replacement. Britax said users remove the chest clip or monitor the center tab of the chest clip for signs of breakage.

CORRECTION: (June 21, 2017, 12:08 p.m. ET): An earlier headline on this article incorrectly identified the item being recalled.

Owners may also contact Britax at 1-833-474-7016.
