Britax Chaperone Infant Car Seat Recall 2010:
What’s going on?
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling about 23,000 Britax Chaperone infant car seats. The reason behind this is because it was noted that ‘harness chest clip could potentially break and pose a laceration hazard or a choking hazard.’ This is just a safety recall! So be on the safe side and check your seat!
How can I tell if mine has been recalled?
The Britax Chaperones that are involved with this recall are the ones that were sold nationwide in June 2009 to October 2010. So, if you have a seat that was manufactured in April 2009 to May 2010, it may be your seat! Be sure to check the white serial number under your child’s seat.
The first part is the model number, and in parenthesis is the color of the seat. The following recalled seats are:
- E9L95P2 (Red Mill)
- E9L95P3 (Savannah)
- E9L95P5 (Cowmooflage)
- E9L69N9 (Moonstone)
So, if you have a recalled car seat, don’t panic! This is just a safety precaution recall. And what you’re going to want to do is get a free chest piece clip from Britax. Also, if your seat is recalled, you will most likely get some kind of notice in the mail. For more information on this recall, please visit www.ChaperoneSeatRecall.com, or call 888-427-4829.
