Phew, we dodged the bullet on that one! We own two Britax car seats but they’re the Marathon model, so we’re OK this time! If you know of someone who uses a Britax Chaperone infant car seat for their baby, let me know about this recall.

Britax is recalling its Chaperone Infant car seats with model numbers E9L95P2 (Red Mill), E9L95P3, E9L95P5 (Cowmooflage), E9L69N9 (Moonstone) manufactured between April 2009 and May 2010. The white serial label with the seat’s serial number, model number, and manufacture date can be found on the underside of the car seat.

The car seat’s harness chest clip can break and pose a laceration hazard. Due to its small size, it also poses a choking hazard. Consumers should immediately contact Britax for a free repair kit, which includes a replacement chest clip. Registered owners have been directly contacted by Britax.

  1. Thanks for keeping us posted on recall updates. It’s alarming how many baby/ kid items are being recalled lately. I wonder if the product quality is getting worse or that people are just more vigilant and aware of what is and isn’t considered safe for their offspring.

    • I think quality is going down. Manufacturers are using cheaper parts (especially plastic) and they break. How many restaurants have you gone to where the plastic buckles of the high chair straps are broken? Cheap never equals safety.
