Infant car seat manufacturer Britax announced Thursday is recalling 71,000 defective rear-facing car seats/infant carriers whose handles may break and cause a baby to fall out and injure themselves.
According to a press release by the National Highway Transportation Safety Association, US-made Britax is recalling its Britax B-Safe 35 and B-Safe 35 Elite infant car seats and travel systems which were made between October 1, 2014 and July 1, 2015.
Consumers who own these infant car seats are being asked to stop using them until they are properly repaired. The car seats, which are equipped with a canopy and are sold in many colors, are equipped with a carry handle that has been found to be defective. In fact, there have been 74 reports that handles have fractured, cracked or broken while being used and one baby suffered a bump on the head when the carrier fell to the ground, the NHTSA reported.
