BRITAX IS RECALLING CERTAIN BRITAX CHAPERON INFANT CAR SEATS MODEL E9L69N9 MOONSTONE, E9L69P2 RED MILL, E9L69P3 SAVANNAH, AND E9L69P5 COWMOOFLAGE, MANUFACTURED FROM APRIL 2009 THROUGH MAY 2010. THE CHEST CLIP WAS INCORRECTLY PRODUCED WHICH COULD RESULT IN A MORE BRITTLE CHEST CLIP THAN WAS INTENDED. AS A RESULT, THE CHEST CLIP WHICH POSITIONS THE HARNESS STRAPS ACROSS THE INFANT’S SHOULDERS MAY BREAK WHEN THE CHEST CLIP IS ENGAGED AS THE INFANT IS SECURED INTO THE INFANT CAR SEAT.

Consequence:
THE SHARP EDGES OF THE BROKEN CHEST CLIP COULD CREATE A RISK OF A SKIN LACERATION AND THE FRACTURED COMPONENTS OF THE CHEST CLIP MAY PRESENT A SMALL PARTS/CHOKING HAZARD.

Remedy:
BRITAX WILL MAIL TO CONSUMERS NOTICE AND REMEDY KITS THAT CONTAIN A REPLACEMENT CHEST CLIP AND INSTRUCTION SHEET. THE SAFETY CAMPAIGN IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT NOVEMBER 11, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BRITAX CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPARTMENT AT 1-888-427-4829.

Notes:
OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION’S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TOHTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .
