Britax recalls over 200,000 car seats due to defective chest clips

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS 11) --Britax is recalling about 207,000 infant car seats because the chest clip can break and pose a choking hazard to the infant.

The recall involves chest clips on certain B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite, and BOB B-Safe 35 infant car seats.

They were manufactured between November 1, 2015 and May 31, 2017.

The company is sending a free remedy kit to owners who have registered their product.

There's a video on the Britax website that explains how to switch out the clip for replacement. (Mobile users: Click here to watch video)

Britax says the car seats remain safe in a crash without the chest clip until the remedy kit can be installed.

The company is unaware of any injuries related to the problem.
