Car Seat Safety Recall Announced
Is your child’s car seat safe?
This week, Britax voluntarily recalled 60,000 car seats due to a potential choking hazard caused by the chest pads on certain models. Find out if your child’s car seat has been recalled. If your model is listed, you can request a replacement chest pad that is provided free of charge by Britax. So, you don’t own a Britax car seat? Keep reading. Injury Prevention experts at Children’s say parents should be aware that many car seats have been recalled in the past few months. Visit SaferCar.gov to determine if your car seat poses a risk to your little one.
