AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

Britax Child Safety is recalling over 207,000 rear-facing infant car seats because part of a clip can break and cause a choking hazard.

The recall affects B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35 seats made from Nov. 1, 2015 to May 31, 2017.

Britax says in government documents that parts were found in the mouths of three children but no choking injuries were reported.

The company traced the cause to customers putting pressure on the clips, which help to properly position the harness straps. Britax says customers can safely keep using the seats if they remove the chest clip or watch a center tab for signs of breakage.

Britax will notify owners and provide a new chest clip. The recall started Wednesday. Britax has set up a website for owners to find out whether their seats are being recalled and other information.

Owners can contact Britax at (833) 474-7016.
