Convertible Child Restraints Recalled- Choking Hazard
Britax Safety Inc. is recalling three models of their convertible child restraints due to choking hazard.
“If the child bites off a piece of the softer pad, it could be a choking hazard, resulting in injury or death,” Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Soft Material Poses Choking Hazard
