Britax Car Seats Recalled Over Choking Hazard
Approximately 60,000 car seats made by Britax Child Safety Inc. are being recalled over a potential choking hazard.
The Associated Press (AP) reports the car seat uses a chest pad material that is soft and can be easily bitten by young children and result in choking. Britax received reports of three cases of children biting off these seat covers and chewing them.
The recalled seats were made from June 11 to August 31, 2012. The Boulevard 70-G3, Advocate 70-G3, and Pavilion 70-G3 models from the U.S and Canada are affected by the recall.
The company has 3,000 registered users of its product to whom it will now provide new covers. Britax says that the seats can also be used without covers, reports AP.
