Britax MaxFix chest pads recalled

I bought a MaxFix in October for DH's car and just found out (by chance) that they recalled the chest pads in November due "to potentially harmful substances found" in them.
Called Britax customer services yesterday and they are sending out replacement chest pads.
DC hasnt spent much time in it anyway because his head falls forward when he sleeps in it and he looks generally uncomfortable.
I hate this seat angry

Do you know if it's just the Maxfix? We have a Dualfix, also bought in October. Do you have a link?

Thanks. It doesn't mention the Dualfix so I've emailed. I did find info to say that the Maxway definitely ISN'T affected though.

Not sure. We have a DualFix too (which DC is very comfy in) and the pads look very similar to the MaxFix ones. As we bought it after they issued the recall I would hope that they would be ok but I've emailed them about that just to make sure.
