Britax is recalling some of its car seats because they could fail to properly secure children in the event of a crash. The recall involves certain Britax Frontier child restraints. The harness straps may detach from the metal yoke on the back of the restraint, if repeatedly loosened one strap at a time.
The affected models include Britax Frontier models E9L54E7, E9L54H6, E9L54H7, E9L54M6 manufactured on or before September 14, 2008, and model E9L5490 which was manufactured on or before September 17, 2008.
To the fix the problem, Britax will mail to all registered owners rubber caps that prevent the straps from detaching. Owners should call Britax at 1-800-683-2045 and request a kit or visit www.frontierrecall.com.
