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 bite or chew on the pads and have bitten off small pieces of the pads which could present a choking hazard, especially in infants.

Look for the white label on the child’s left-hand side of the seat near the head/ear area.
This label displays the seat’s serial number, manufacture date, and batch number.

If you have not yet received your remedy kit and have concerns that your child may bite the HUGS pads, they can be removed and the car seat can be safely used until replacement pads are received. As always please ensure that proper harness tensioning is achieved.
