Britax Child Safety, Inc., has recalled approximately 23,000 of its Chaperone infant car seats. The harness clip near the baby’s chest can break and pose both a laceration and choking hazard. Manufactured in China, the car seats were sold nationwide and online for approximately $230 from June 2009 to October 2010.
A white label with the seat’s manufacture date, serial number and model number is located on the underside of the car seat. The recalled models were manufactured from April 2009 to May 2010. Recalled models include:
- E9L69N9 (Moonstone)
- E9L69P2 (Red Mill)
- E9L69P3 (Savannah)
- E9L69P5 (Cowmooflage)
