Britax, the manufacturer of B-Safe 35 and B-Safe 35 Elite infant car seats has issued a recall of certain models. The company has decided that a defect exists in the handles of certain B-Safe 35 and B-Safe 35 Elite infant car seat models. This recall involves a defect within the carry handle on certain infant car seats manufactured between October 1, 2014 and July 1, 2015. These models were sold in the US and Canada.
The company has received reports of cracks developing in and around the carry handle grip on certain infant car seat models. If the cracks lead to the handle breaking, then the seat could be dropped, causing potential injury to the infant. According to Britax, 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.
