ARGOS has issued an urgent recall for Mamas and Papas car seats, saying they may not protect children in a crash.
Instead of shielding a baby the seat could crack, a spokesman said.
They asked anyone who has bought one of these seats to check which model it is as they may need to take it back to the shop for a refund.
In a statement on their website, Argos said: “We have identified a potential safety concern. In the event of an accident the car seat shell may crack and therefore not provide the intended level of protection to the user.
“If you have purchased any of the above seats, you should immediately stop using the product and return the car seat to your local Argos store for a full refund.
“We wish to thank you for your co-operation and apologise for any inconvenience caused by this recall.”
A user on Playpennies parenting forum said it was her complaint that led to the recall: “I am absolutely seething at Mamas and Papas right now! These are being recalled due to a massive complaint from me, I lent on my sons seat and it cracked.”
If you have purchased any of the above seats, you should immediately stop using the product and return the car seat to your local Argos store for a full refund.
