Britax Child Safety has recently announced a recall for 55, 455 child restraints because children have apparently bitten off and gagged on pieces of the chest pads.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 55, 455 child restraints will be affected by this recall and parents will have to be aware that the recall for certain models has been announced because of the problem with the chest pads.
“Those products were manufactured with an enhanced harness system that incorporated a softer, more pliable, non-toxic material intended to provide increased performance and comfort. Britax has received three reports that children have bitten off and gagged on pieces of the pads”, as the company has told federal safety regulators.
The NHTSA is saying that the models recalled are the Advocate 70-G3, the Boulevard 70-G3 and the Pavilion 70-G3 series, which entered production on the 11th of June, 2012. Britax said it will mail remedy kits to all registered U.S. consumers, but until this will happen, we advise you to remove the chest pads if you own the above mentioned Britax Child Safety restraints.
