The affected child restraints have handles that may develop cracks in, under, and around, the carry handle grip. The cracks may lead to the handle fracturing and the seat falling while being carried.
Consequences If the seat falls, there is an increased risk of injury to the infant in the child restraint.
Corrective action Britax will notify all registered owners, and will ship them a remedy kit that includes a carry handle reinforcing bracket, free of charge. The recall began on January 21, 2016. Owners may contact Britax customer service at 1-800-683-2045 or Britax.Recall@Britax.com. Please Note: This does not affect the safety performance of the seat when used in a motor vehicle. It is safe for consumers to continue to use their car seat when secured in a vehicle or on a stroller. The car seat should not be lifted or carried by the carry handle until the remedy kit has been installed.
Notes Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
