Massive recall launched for Britax B-Safe infant child safety seats

Britax is recalling 207,000 infant vehicle seats after the company says the chest clip can break, posing a choking hazard to children.

Included in the recall are B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35 infant auto seat models. You can find your seat's model number on a sticker on the bottom of the vehicle seat.

The company explains that users can locate their serial number by looking at the Date of Manufacture (DOM) label located on the lower frame of the back of their auto seat.

Britax says no choking injuries related to the buckle have been reported at this time.

NTSB Investigation into Tesla Autopilot crash concludes driver error
On May 7, 2016, Joshua Brown was killed when his Tesla Model S collided with an 18-wheeler in Williston, Florida. The driver and sole occupant of the Tesla died in the crash; the commercial truck driver was not injured.

The recall is being made with regulatory agencies including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

CORRECTION: (June 21, 2017, 12:08 p.m. ET): An earlier headline on this article incorrectly identified the item being recalled. The company says the vehicle seats remain safe in a crash without the chest clip until the remedy kit can be installed.

The company said it will contact owners and give them free replacement clips. Owners can call the manufacturer at 833-474-7016 or visit www.bsafe35clip.com for more information.
