Mamas & Papas Car Seats are Recalled over Crash Fears
Mamas & Papas have recalled certain car seats amid fears they could crack in an accident. However, Mamas & Papas said there have been no incidents of children being hurt as a result of using the car seats at the centre of the recall.
The seats affected are Mamas & Papas Nembus, Mamas & Papas Aureus, Mamas & Papas Group 123, and the Mamas & Papas Altair.
Thousands were sold through Asda, Tesco, Shop Direct, some independent retailers as well as the brand's own website and factory stores.
The firm said: 'Following a series of safety checks, the manufacturer has identified a potential concern with a number of car seats.
Mamas and Papas have issued advice on how to identify whether customers have the faulty car seats. They said to find the approval number on the orange label on the back of the seat and check that the number is 04 44596
'In the event of an accident, the car seat shell may crack and therefore not provide the intended level of protection to the user.'
It added: 'Mamas & Papas can assure customers that none of the affected car seats have been on sale since March 2015 and there have been no reports of any incidents involving any of the affected car seats.'
The company said parents should 'immediately stop using the product' and contact customer services on 03332 412154.
A designated courier service will collect the car seat and owners will be issued with a refund or replacement.
