Britax Baby Safe Infant Carrier recall
Cardiff Council’s Trading Standards is warning owners of certain Britax Baby-Safe infant carriers that were purchased between 1st February & 31st March 2012 about a voluntary recall due to a quality issue.
The reason for the recall is that the handle of a number of the infant carriers could be damaged or, in adverse circumstances, detach, if sudden force is applied to it. This may cause the infant carrier to swing, to separate, to fall to the ground or to arrive in other unsafe situations when carrying the product and can pose a risk of injury to the occupying child especially if the child is – against the user instructions – not harnessed. The defect may not be recognised by the consumers instantly.
Cardiff Council’s head of Regulatory and Supporting Services, Dave Holland, said: “Cardiff Council takes the issue of child safety very seriously. We ask consumers in possession of these particular infant carriers to stop using them with immediate effect and contact the manufacturer.”
Only a small number of potentially affected products are in use with consumers. Also, the recall only relates to the Baby-Safe infant carrier but not to the Baby-Safe plus II or the Baby-Safe plus SHR II.
Affected products need verification of their item number and corresponding serial number.
To do this, customers are advised to go to http://www.baby-safe-recall.eu/ and enter the following information.
The stickers with the item number and the serial number are located on the left side of the infant carrier (in direction of the occupying child) behind the handle hinge.
Select the item number in the drop down field. The item number is located above the barcode on the white sticker on the Baby-Safe.
Type in the serial number. The serial number is 8 characters long and is located underneath the bar code on the orange ECE label of the Baby-Safe.
