Argos has issued an urgent recall of certain car seats and warned parents to stop using them “immediately”.

The retailer has recalled five products from upmarket brand Mamas & Papas over safety concerns.

A recall was issued on Sunday over fears the models may not be able to protect children in the event of a crash, with their shells cracking under impact.

Argos is offering a full refund to customers.

Here is a list of the affected models:

  • Mamas & Papas Mercury Group 1 Black (Argos catalogue number 297/7526)
  • Mamas & Papas Mercury Group 1 Grey (Argos catalogue number 411/9100)
  • Mamas & Papas Mercury Group 1-2-3 Black (Argos catalogue number 305/6037)
  • Mamas & Papas Mercury Group 1, 2, 3 Grey (Argos catalogue number 397/9530)
  • Mamas & Papas Mercury Group 2-3 Black and Grey (Argos catalogue number 245/4829)

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 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.
