Mamas & Papas state there has been no reports of any accidents involving the affected car seats.
A recall notice from the company states: “Following a series of safety checks, Mamas & Papas have identified a potential safety concern with a number of car seats that were sold through Asda, Tesco, Shop Direct and some independent retailers.
“They were also sold through the Mamas & Papas website and our factory stores. In the event of an accident the car seat shell may crack and therefore not provide the intended level of protection to the user.
“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.”
Parents who have one of the seats are advised to stop using it and contact the brand’s customer services team on 03332 412154. A designated courier service will collect the seat and parents will be issued with a refund or replacement.
