According to the NHSTA, Britax is going to recall over 30,000 Frontier boosters in January 2009. The problem is that on certain models, the harness straps may detach from the metal yoke in the back if the straps are loosened one at a time. That obviously poses a safety hazard since the child wouldn’t be strapped in properly if a strap is detached.
Beginning in January 2009, all registered owners will receive a consumer notice and remedy kit. Unregistered owners should call Britax and request a kit (704-409-1700). Britax is supposed to post information about the recall on their website by December 17 (there isn’t anything right now).
