The recall affects B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35 seats made from Nov. 1, 2015 to May 31, 2017.
Britax states that parts were found in the mouths of three children but no injuries were recorded. The company traced the cause to customers putting pressure on the clips, which help to properly position the harness straps. It noted that the car seats remain safe to use, so long as consumers remove the faulty chest clip.
