Health Canada, Transport Canada, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC) and Britax Child Safety, Inc. have recalled certain B-Safe 35 and B-Safe 35/B-Agile Travel Systems manufactured between October 1, 2014 and July 1, 2015:
B-Safe 35/B-Agile Travel System
Model numbers and date of manufacture (DOM) are listed on a label located at the back of the car seat shell.
The car seat handle may crack and break, causing a fall hazard.
While Health Canada has not received any reports in relation to the seats, Britax has received 74 reports (one of which was in Canada) of the handle breaking or cracking during use. One incident in the U.S. resulted in an injury to an infant whose seat fell.
The seat is safe to use when secured in a vehicle or stroller. However, customers are advised not to carry the seat by the handle until they have received their free repair kit. To see whether your product is registered, or to order a repair kit, customers may contact Britax via their website.
For more information, customers may contact Britax by telephone at 1-800-683-2045 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday and from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. ET on Friday, via email or via the Britax website listed above.
From November 1, 2014 to January 1, 2016, approximately 3,900 seats were sold in Canada, and about 71,000 in the United States.
