Britax Super Elite child restraint recall announced
Charlotte, N.C. – Britax Child Safety Inc. is conducting a recall of the Super Elite child restraint, as certain restraints may contain a defect related to motor vehicle safety. Britax products are sold in stores throughout Canada.
The recall includes the entire production of the Super Elite (E9031) from April 2001 through 2002. No other model is affected. Under certain circumstances after prolonged use, the harness adjuster tab may begin to stick. If it does, the adjuster strap webbing may slip within the adjuster and allow the harness to loosen. No injuries have been reported to date.
Britax will provide owners with an adjuster strap webbing guide, enabling them to prevent sticking by limiting the movement of the adjuster webbing. The kit is expected to be available on or before July 20, 2005. For more information, call Britax at 1-800-683-2045 or visit www.britaxusa.com.
