Britax Infant Car Seat Recall Announced

Britax has announced a recall relating to a safety defect in certain infant car seat models. The defect exists within the carry handle on the seats, and parents with Britax infant seats are urged to visit Britax’s infant car seat repair kit web page to check if they own an affected model, and if so to obtain a remedy kit as soon as possible.

Britax notes that the defect does not affect the safety performance of the seat when used in a motor vehicle, and that it is safe for consumers to continue to use their car seat when secured in a vehicle or on a stroller. However, the company notes that the car seat should not be lifted or carried by the carry handle until the remedy kit has been installed.
