Britax recalls more than 200,000 car seats for defective chest clips

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Britax has launched a massive recall of some of its child safety seats.

The company is recalling some 200,000 car seats because the chest clip could break, which poses a choking hazard to young children.

The recalled seats come from three separate travel systems with hundreds of model numbers.

The travel systems affected are the B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and the BOB B-Safe 35.

Britax says it will notify owners and provide a replacement chest clip marked “PC”, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin June 21.  In the meantime, owners can contact Britax at 1-833-474-7016 or visit www.bsafe35clip.com.

The following model numbers are affected:
