WASHINGTON (AP) - 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.

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