Britax Römer issues car seat recall

Britax Römer car seat recall

Parents who bought car seats between November last year and this month are being urged to check whether they're safe

Britax Römer has issued a voluntary recall of their classic DUALFIX child car seat due to a potential safety issue with one of the seat's components.

The potentially unsafe component was used in some DUALFIX car seats sold between 3 November 2017 and 22 March 2018. Any parents who purchased a DUALFIX during that time should go to www.dualfix-check.com to check if their seat is impacted by the voluntary recall.

Britax Römer has confirmed that DUALFIX car seats sold before 3 November 2017 and after 22 March 2018 are not affected by the potential safety risk. The specific component is not used in any other Britax Römer products, including all other versions of the DUALFIX. Britax Römer has not received any reports of incidents or accidents relating to the potentially affected component.

The classic DUALFIX car seat is suitable for babies from birth and has a rotating function which allows the seat to adjust from rear to front facing.

Britax Römer will be exchanging all DUALFIX products sold between 3 November 2017 and 22 March 2018.
