Britax Child Safety Seats Recalled

A recall has been issued by the the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for the Britax "Companion" child safety seats after discovering that the carrier may fail in a crash. The rear-facing, infant-only child safety seat (Model E9L14) could result in serious injury or death to a child in the event of an accident. Due to incorrect assembly of some of the carriers, tabs on the bottom of the seats may not be properly placed, causing the restraints to fail to conform to federal standards. Britax have offered to replace the base of the carriers for no charge, and advise owners to continue to use the carrier without a base until the replacements arrive.
