The Problem: A center tab on the chest clip marked "ABS" may break, posing a choking hazard to the child and increasing the risk of an injury in a crash. Britax stated that no choking injuries have been reported.
The Fix: Britax will provide a more durable replacement chest clip marked "PC" for free.
