YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan — An infant car seat has been removed from Army and Air Force Exchange Service shelves after a recall by the Britax company, AAFES announced Thursday.

The recall was ordered after a problem was found with the chest clip on the Chaperone Infant Car Seat, according to an AAFES release.

“The clips can break while the child is secured in the car seat, causing sharp edges, risking skin lacerations or choking hazards from small broken pieces,” the release said.

Britax infant seats model numbers E9L69P2, E9L69P3 and E9L69P5 were being sold by AAFES.

Britax will provide free kits that contain a replacement chest clip and instruction sheet, according to the release.
