    Britax Recalls Infant Seat Chest Clip Over Choking Hazard

    The chest clip on some Britax infant seats may present a choking hazard, prompting the company to issue a recall Tuesday.

    Dozens of model numbers of B-Safe 35, BOB B-Safe 35 or 35 Elite infant seats and infant car seats are affected by the recall, for which a remedy kit is being made available. No injuries have so far been reported to the car seat and stroller manufacturer.

    The company notes that the infant car seats remain safe in a crash, and that while the term "recall" is being used, the entire seat does not need to be replaced. A document and a video on the Britax website explain how to switch out the clip for the sturdier replacement.

    The following model numbers are affected, if they were manufactured between November 1, 2015 or after May 31, 2017:

    A Turkish military convoy carrying tanks and additional soldiers crossed into Syria Monday. Syrian troops, meanwhile, entered several northern towns and villages near the border as Turkey's army marched south, raising concerns of clashes.

    Earlier this year, the company recalled B-Agile and BOB Motion Strollers with Click and Go receivers over a damaged receiver mount following reports of car seats unexpectedly disengaging from strollers and falling, leading to more than two dozen scratches, bruises, cuts and bumps on the head.

    CORRECTION: (June 21, 2017, 12:08 p.m. ET): An earlier headline on this article incorrectly identified the item being recalled. The recall is for chest clips on child safety seats.
