Britax has issued a recall for dozens of models of their infant seats after it was discovered that the chest clip is a potential choking hazard.
The good news is that you don't need to replace the whole seat! It's a pretty easy fix, and Britax is offering free remedy kits to every customer. They even have a step-by-step guide and how-to video on their website to make it really easy!
The following model numbers, manufactured between November 1, 2015 or after May 31, 2017, are affected:
