Have you heard the news?

If you purchased a Britax B-Safe 35 Car Seat or Travel System between 11/1/15 – 5/31/17, you may be interested to know that Britax is recalling over 200,00 seat chest clips in the United States. The reason for the recall is that the center tab on the chest clip can break presenting a choking hazard to an infant in the car seat.

Britax is specifically recalling these select models of Car Seats and Travel Systems with B-Safe 35 chest clips –> head here to see if your model is effected and to request a free kit that contains step-by-step instructions and a replacement chest clip made from a different material that improves the durability of the tab.

If your seat meets the requirements of this recall, contact consumer services at 1-833-474-7016 Monday through Friday 8:30AM-7PM ET to request a repair kit.

(Thanks, Ben!)

    Of course, we have the Bob Britax BSafe 35

    We have the travel system, 2 recalls in the last year! Makes me feel uneasy about buying more products from Britax.

      Still better than all the Graco recalls.

    This company has a lot of recalls. You’d expect better quality considering the high cost of their products.

    Thank you! We are using one of the affected seats and I ordered the remedy kit. 🙂

      You’re welcome Amanda!

    When my daughter called prior to recall to replace clip she was on hold for 20 minutes, told to use it broken will not hurt baby. Took 3 weeks for it to come. Not the best advice.

    My first baby is due Aug 1st. I got this car seat last year at $50.00 on clearance at BB&B.. awesome deal. But I am having trouble finding the stroller to match it w/o paying the $500.00 stroller price.. Any one have ideas?
    Ive looked into the snap and go but it will not fit my car seat.

    Also yes, my car seat is affected – I ordered the replacement buckle about a week ago.
