Fort Myers Injury Attorneys: Important Car Seat Recall

by Carmen Dellutri on February 24, 2012

Cape Coral accident lawyerAs Fort Myers injury attorneys, we want to share an important product safety recall that could be putting your child at risk. The recall involves 14,220 Chaperone Infant Car Seats sold in the U.S.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the defect can result in ineffective safety harness straps. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported at this time.

The Britax Child Safety, Inc. recall affects seat models E9L692J, E9L692K, E9L692L and E9L692M manufactured from September 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011, and is intended to address a defective rivet that attaches the harness adjuster to the car seat.

As detailed by the NHTSA, the defective rivet can cause the harness adjuster to detach from the seat, rendering the safety harness straps used to secure an infant in the seat unable to properly restrain the child.

Britax intends to provide consumers and retailers with a remedy kit to ensure the harness adjuster is securely attached by February 6, 2012, and will continue to replace seats with detached harness adjusters.

Owners of car seats whose harness adjuster is detached from the seat are advised to stop using the device immediately and to contact Britax to have the issue resolved. Consumers who would like further information about this recall can contact Britax Child Safety, Inc., at (888) 427-4829 or at www.chaperonerecall.com.
