A car seat that could pose two possible health risks has been recalled by Health Canada on Friday.
The manufacturer of the car seat is the Company Britax of North Carolina. It made infant car seats with brand name Chaperone in China between April 2009 and May 2010.
The harness chest clip of the infant car seats could break and the sharp edges could make scratches or cuts on the infants' body. Also, breaking of the chips into small parts can pose risk of choking among infants, as told by Health Canada.
The car seats that have been recalled bear the model numbers E9L69P2, E9L69P3 and E9L69P5. The Company sold out nearly 2,350 units of the recalled car seats in Canada. The letters "PC" have been carved on the recalled seats. The car seats with letters "POM" are not included in the recalled seats. Those consumers, who have in possession the recalled seats, should contact Britax immediately to replace the kit.
Though no reports have been received by Health Canada of cases related to injuries caused by car seats, but there was one complaint in Canada and four in the U. S., where a part of the chest clip was found in the infant's mouth.
