Britax Child Safety Incorporated has issued a recall for certain Chaperone car seats manufactured between September 1, 2010, and April 30, 2011, after discovering that the harness adjuster is not properly attached to the seat shell. If the harness adjuster comes off of the seat, a child in the seat has a significantly higher risk of injury or death in the event of an accident. This recall has been announced by Britax Child Safety Incorporated on a voluntary basis, and it has been issued in compliance with a request from the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Approximately 14,220 child safety seats are affected by this recall, which includes Britax Chaperone models of various colors: E9L692J (black and silver), E9L692K (red), E9L692L (black and white cow print), and E9L692M (green). Britax is in the process of notifying consumers about the issue, and is providing complimentary repair kits to owners, and will also replace any units on which the harness adjuster has already detached. The company began mailing repair kits to registered owners of affected child safety seats beginning in February of this year. Consumers in possession of affected Britax Chaperone child safety seats may visit the company’s recall website, or contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline and reference NHTSA campaign identification number 12C001000 to obtain more information regarding this recall. United States law prohibits the resale of consumer products under safety recall.
