Britax Child Safety, Inc., has recalled chest clip on certain B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35 infant car seat models manufactured between Nov. 1, 2015 and May 31, 2017 as identified on www.bsafe35clip.com. Britax determined the center tab on the chest clip – on certain infant car seat models – can break and present a choking hazard to an infant in the car seat. There have been no choking injuries. Britax said it is announcing this recall out of an abundance of caution.
Consumers 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. Consumers should always ensure harness straps are tight and properly positioned at or slightly below the child’s shoulders. To verify the tightness of the harness straps consumers should make sure they cannot vertically pinch any webbing at the child’s collar bone.
To determine if your infant car seat is included in the recall, visit: www.bsafe35clip.com and follow these steps: Look for the Date of Manufacture (DOM) label on the back of the infant car seat shell. Compare the DOM details to the model numbers and date range listed on the site. If your seat is affected and you registered your seat, you will automatically be sent a free replacement chest clip. If your seat is affected and you didn’t register your seat, you can order your free kit here: www.bsafe35clip.com. Until you receive your replacement chest clip, you can continue to safely use the car seat as long as you remove your current chest clip or monitor the center tab of the chest clip for signs of breakage. Before installing the new replacement chest clip, review the printed step-by-step instructions and/or watch the how-to video on the site. Do not return product to the retailer.
