Mamas & Papas Recall Four Car Seats Over Fears They Will 'Not Give Full Protection' In An Accident

There have been no reports of any incidents involving the affected car seats.

Mamas & Papas is recalling some of its car seats due to child safety concerns.

Following safety checks, the UK-based retailer found four of their seats may not give full protection to a child in the event of an accident. 

The recalled seats are: Mamas & Papas Nembus, Mamas & Papas Aureus, Mamas & Papas Group 123 and the Mamas & Papas Altair.

The seats all would have been sold before March 2015 through the Mamas & Papas website and factory stores, as well as Asda, Tesco, Shop Direct (Littlewoods and Very) and some independent retailers.

All affected seats have the code 04 44596 printed on the orange label on the back.

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.
