Britax has recalled their B-Safe and B-Safe 35 Elite infant car seats and travel systems. This recall applies only to those models manufactured between October 1, 2014 and July 1, 2015. Model numbers and manufacture date are printed on a label located on the back of the infant car seat and carrier shell (see picture here on left).
Britax reports that cracks or factures can develop on the handles and they recommend that customers do not carry the seats using the handles until they contact Britax at 800-683-2045 or bsafe35recall to receive a free repair kit. The seats are still safe to use when secured in a vehicle on or a stroller.
