Britax Child Safety Inc. Recalls the "Decathlon" Child Safety Seat

A child safety seat company has announced a safety recall of one of their products today.

Britax child safety announced the recall of their Decathlon child restraint with model number E9L47 on seats made from February 12, 2005, through July 31, 2007.

The date and model numbers can be found on a white lable located near the top of the restraint on the left side under the cover.

The recall is from a part of the seat that when pulled at an extreme angle could separate from the seat.

The company says no injuries have been reported and as of August 1st they have made manufacturing changes to resolve the issue.

Britax released the following:

"Britax will send all owners two push rivet fasteners to secure the adjuster to the child restraint. This quick modification will prevent the possibility of having the adjuster move out of position inside of the shell housing.

Registered owners of the Decathlon child restraint will automatically be notified and sent complete instructions and push rivet fasteners by mail beginning August 17, 2007. To assist in this process video instructions are available on the Britax website, at www.BritaxUSA.com. The modification will take less than five minutes to complete.

Owners of the Decathlon that have not registered their product should contact the Britax information line, toll free at 1-800-683-2045 or register online at www.BritaxUSA.com. Consumers may also order repair kits online at www.DecathlonRecall.com.

Even if the restraint is operating normally, all owners of this restraint are strongly advised to make the required modification once the fasteners are received."
