    NHTSA Recalls Britax Child Safety Seat

    October 5, 2006

    For illustration only. Recalled units may vary in appearance.
    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is recalling the "Companion" rear-facing, infant-only child safety seat (Model E9L14).

    In a crash, the carrier may fail, resulting in serious injury or even death to the child.

    The recall includes seats produced from October 31, 2003, through June 6, 2004.

    Because of incorrect assembly of some of the infant carriers, tabs on the bottom of the carrier may not be properly seated and the child restraints fail to conform to federal standards.

    Britax will notify all registered owners and ask them to inspect the bottom of the carrier.

    If the carrier was assembled incorrectly, Britax will replace the carrier and the base free of charge. However, owners are advised that they may continue using the carrier without the base until they receive a new restraint system.

    The Britax recall number for this campaign is BCS #090601. Consumers with questions about this or any other safety recall campaign should contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153).
