If your Britax was made after 31 December, 2012 - or has a different model number than those listed above - it is NOT included in this recall.

The stroller model and date of manufacturer can be found on a label affixed to the stroller.

Though no injury was reported, Health Canada received nine reports of a child biting off a piece of foam on the arm bar, which poses a choking hazard. In the United States, Britax received 117 reports of children biting the foam arm bar, with five injuries sustained.

Customers are advised to immediately remove the foam-padded arm bar and contact Britax for a free replacement kit containing a zippered fabric arm cover and new warning label. Alternatively, customers may continue to use their B-Ready strollers without the arm bar attached.  

For further information, customers can contact Britax toll free 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.

Between April 1, 2010 and December 31, 2012, approximately 11,320 B-Ready Strollers and/or Top Seats were sold through various retailers in Canada, and approximately 49,000 in the United States.
