Britax is recalling about 23,000 infant car seats due to faulty harness clips.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the clip on the chest harness of the Chinese-made car seats can break loose and pose a risk of cuts or a choking hazard.

The Charlotte, N.C.-based Britax Child Safety Inc. has received three reports of cuts and scratches and one report of a child placing a broken clip in his mouth.

This recall involves Chaperone infant car seats with model numbers E9L95P2, E9L95P3, E9L95P5 and E9L69N9. The white serial label with the seat’s serial number, model number, and manufacture date can be found on the underside of the car seat.

The car seats were sold nationwide as well as on the Britax website from June 2009 to October 2010.
