Buckle your seatbelts: the child safety product manufacturer Britax is recalling over 207,000 infant car seats because they have a clip that can become a choking hazard.

The problem part is a center tab on the chest clip that can break off, according to Britax’s website. No choking injuries have been reported so far, so the recall is being done voluntarily. The clip comes on the models B-Safe 35, B-Safe 35 Elite and BOB B-Safe 35 manufactured between Nov. 1, 2015 and May 31, 2017. Here’s a list of the affected model numbers:
