Recall of child seat: Quality problems with Britax Römer “DUALFIX” model
Child seat manufacturer Britax Römer replaces a production batch of the “DUALFIX” child seat. Seats sold between November 2017 and March 2018 are affected. The reason for this is a possible faulty component.
The company Britax Römer recalls all DUALFIX child seats sold between November 3, 2017 and March 22, 2018. Parents are asked to check online whether their seat is affected by the child seat recall. If this is the case, it must be replaced as quickly as possible by the manufacturer. Britax Römer is doing everything in its power “to carry out the product exchange as quickly and smoothly as possible,” says Marketing Director Moritz Walther. “Since March 22nd we have already processed many product exchanges and some parents have already received their new DUALFIX. We understand that many families depend on their car seats and are currently working at full speed to inform potentially affected consumers”.
No reported incidents
The company had not received any reports of incidents in this regard, but had decided voluntarily to replace the relevant seats. “The child seat recall […] is based on regular, internal quality checks,” emphasizes the company. The results would not have met the high safety standards. It was not disclosed which faulty component the recall is about.
