Recall Alert: Car Seat May Pose Threat To Your Infant

As parents, the experienced legal team of Howell and Christmas, took notice of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s announcement of a voluntary recall of an infant car seat made by Britax. The announcement was made by the Commission earlier this month and is due to the product’s potential for laceration and choking hazards. The Chaperone infant car seats were sold at mass and independent retailers nationwide and on the Britax website from June 2009 to October 2010 for about $230.

The cause of four children’s injuries and the reason for recall is the harness chest clip, which can break and pose a laceration hazard. There have been three reported cases that cited the chest clip as being the reason for lacerations and scratches to arms and a finger. Also, due to the small size the clip is a choking hazard. There was a single report of an infant placing the clip in his mouth.

This recall involves Chaperone infant car seats with model numbers E9L95P2 (Red Mill), E9L95P3, E9L95P5 (Cowmooflage), E9L69N9 (Moonstone) manufactured between April 2009 and May 2010. The white serial label with the seat’s serial number, model number, and manufacture date can be found on the underside of the car seat.

South Carolina child injury attorneys suggest that owners of one of the above products should immediately call Britax for a free repair kit (includes a replacement chest clip), if the company has not already informed you of this recall.
