Britax Chaperone Infant Car Seat Recall
November 2, 2010 2:27 pm | by

Cotton Babies is dedicated to the safety and well being of you and your baby. We have been notified by Britax of a voluntary recall of the Britax Chaperone Infant Car Seat. These car seats were sold on and in our St. Louis retail store. We are currently working to notify all customers who purchased the Britax Chaperone Infant Car Seat from our website.

According to Britax, the potential problem is:

The Chest Clip supplied with the Chaperone Infant Car Seat was incorrectly produced by the manufacturer which resulted in a more brittle chest clip than was intended. As a result, the chest clip which positions the harness straps across the infant’s shoulders may break when the chest clip is engaged as the infant is secured into the infant car seat. The sharp edges of the broken chest clip create a risk of a skin laceration and the fractured components of the chest clip may present a small parts/choking hazard. If the chest clip breaks, the broken chest clip should be removed from the harness along with any fragments. The Chaperone Infant Car Seat can continue to be used until the replacement chest clip is installed.

The recall includes all Britax Chaperone Infant Car Seats manufactured between April 2009 and May 2010 for model numbers E9L69N9, E9L69P2, E9L69P3 and EL969P5.
To check your Chaperone Infant Car Seat to see if it is affected:
  1. Remove Chaperone Infant Car Seat from base.
  2. Turn Infant Car Seat over and locate the white sticker on underside of Car Seat
  3. Look for model numbers: E9L69N9, E9L69P2, E9L69P3, E9L69P5;
  4. Look for Manufactured dates between April 2009 through May 2010.
If you registered your car seat with Britax, you will be sent a remedy kit to the address you registered. The remedy kits from Britax will include replacement chest clips and detailed instructions on how to change out the chest clips on your seat.
If you have not registered your car seat with Britax, need to verify your registration or address, or have any questions about the safety of your Britax car seat, please contact the Britax Information line at 1-888-427-4289 or visit
