‘Mamas & Papas’ has identified a potential safety concern with a number of car seats that were sold through Tesco, Asda, Shop Direct and some independent retailers. They were also sold through the Mamas & Papas website and its 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.
The seats affected are Mamas & Papas Nembus, Mamas & Papas Aureus, Mamas & Papas Group 123, Mamas & Papas Altair. All are Group 123 car seats. The seats can be identified by comparing the orange label on the back with the one shown in the attached picture. The approval code should match and is 04 44596.
