These seats were manufactured with a softer chest pad material that may be bitten or chewed into pieces by a child using the seat. If the child bites off a piece of the softer pad, it could be a choking hazard, resulting in injury or death.
Britax will provide owners with replacement HUGS pads that are made from a firmer material and instructions on how to replace the pads free of charge.
Owners may remove the HUGS pads and continue using the seat until replacement pads are received. The safety recall is expected to begin shortly.
Owners may contact Britax Customer Service Department at 1-888-427-4829 with questions or to request replacement pads in the event their restraint is not already registered with Britax.
