BRITAX ANNOUNCES VOLUNTARY SAFETY RECALL: NO INJURIES HAVE BEEN REPORTED
This Recall effects all BRITAX Chaperone Infant Car Seats manufactured between September 1, 2010 and April 30, 2011 for Model numbers E9L952J, E9L952K, E9L952L

In accordance with the requirements of Transport Canada, BRITAX Child Safety, Inc. announced today that it is conducting a voluntary safety recall on the Chaperone Infant Car Seat. The recall includes Chaperone Infant Car Seats manufactured between September 1, 2010 and April 30, 2011 for Model #s E9L952J, E9L952K, and E9L952L.

On the BRITAX CHAPERONE Infant Car Seat, the harness adjuster ensures that the harness straps can be properly tightened and secured over the infant shoulders and is attached to the infant car seat shell.

The rivet used to attach the harness adjuster to the shell may have been improperly installed. As a result, the harness adjuster may detach from the shell. Should the harness adjuster detach from the infant car seat shell the harness straps will not properly secure the child resulting in increased risk of injury in a vehicle crash.

IF the harness adjuster on your Chaperone Infant Car Seat detaches, please discontinue use of the product immediately and contact our Customer Service Department at 1- 888-427-4829. To address this issue, BRITAX is providing a remedy kit including a harness adjuster clip and instructions for properly installing it. All Chaperone Infant Car Seat owners should confirm whether their child restraint is affected by verifying the date of manufacture and model number. No later than February 6, 2012, remedy kits and instructions for using them, will begin shipping to all registered Chaperone Infant Car Seat owners with affected seats.

Consumers who have not registered their product or need to verify existing registration should contact the BRITAX information line, toll free at (888) 427-4829 between 8:30 am - 4:45 pm (EST) Monday – Thursday, between 8:30 am - 3:45 pm (EST) on Friday or visit www.britax.ca (see “Safety Notice” link).

BRITAX manufactures and markets lines of premium car seats, strollers and accessories.
