Due to a choking hazard, Britax has issued a voluntary recall of 60,000 convertible car seats.
The seats were manufactured between June and August of 2012 and include the Britax Boulevard 70-G3, Pavilion 70-G3, and Advocate 70-G3. Because small pieces can come loose if a child bites it, the chest pads are a risk. The manufacturer's date and model number can be found on the child's upper left hand side of the seat. The recalled models include:
E9LJ91A, E9LJ91M, E9LJ91S, E9LJ92E, E9LJ93P, E9LJ93S, E9LK91A, E9LK31A, E9LK31Q, E9LK32D, E9LK32Z, E9LK33Q, E9LL11A, E9LL11Q, E9LL12D, E9LL12Z, E9LG81A, E9LG83N, E9LG83P, E9LG83X, E9LG83Y, E9LL21A, E9LL23P, E9LL23Y
The company is offering free replacement chest pads which will be made of a firmer material that cannot tear off. Visit www.britaxconvertiblerecall.com.
