CHARLOTTE, N.C., November 6, 2012 — In accordance with the requirements of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), BRITAX Child Safety, Inc. announced today that it is conducting a voluntary safety recall on the BRITAX Boulevard 70-G3, Pavilion 70-G3, and Advocate 70-G3 Convertible Car Seats.  The recall includes BRITAX Boulevard 70-G3, Pavilion 70-G3, and Advocate 70-G3 Convertible Car Seats manufactured between June 1, 2012 and August 31, 2012 for Model Numbers:  E9LJ91A, E9LJ91M, E9LJ91S, E9LJ92E, E9LJ93P, E9LJ93S, E9LK91A, E9LK31A, E9LK31Q, E9LK32D, E9LK32Z, E9LK33Q, E9LL11A, E9LL11Q, E9LL12D, E9LL12Z, E9LG81A, E9LG83N, E9LG83P, E9LG83X, E9LG83Y, E9LL21A, E9LL23P, E9LL23Y.
On the BRITAX Boulevard 70-G3, Pavilion 70-G3, and Advocate 70-G3 Convertible Car Seats, HUGS (Harness Ultra-Guard System) Chest Pads are affixed to the seat shell to ensure proper positioning and provide resistance to the forward movement of your child in a crash, reducing the risk of head injury.
The affected Boulevard 70-G3, Pavilion 70-G3, and Advocate 70-G3 Convertible Car Seats were manufactured with this enhanced harness system that incorporated a softer more pliable, non-toxic HUGS pad intended to provide increased performance and comfort.   BRITAX has received reports that some children chew or bite on the pads and have bitten off small pieces of the pads which could present a choking hazard, especially in infants.
To address this issue, BRITAX is providing a remedy kit that contains two replacement HUGS Pads that are made from a firmer material that will not break apart when children chew or bite the HUGS Pads and an instruction sheet for replacing the pads.  Confirm whether your Boulevard 70-G3, Pavilion 70-G3, or Advocate 70-G3 Convertible Car Seat is affected by verifying the model number and date of manufacture.
