Britax is recalling certain Chaperone infant child restraint systems produced from September 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011. The harness adjuster can detach from the seat shell. Should the harness adjuster detach from the seat, the child will not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury or death. Britax will notify owners and provide repair kits free of charge. The safety recall and mailing of the kits is expected to begin on or about February 6, 2012. Until then, any seats on which the harness adjuster has detached will be replaced.
