Parents are being urged to check their children’s car booster seats after a new national recall was just announced because of fears some chairs sold in Australia can be dangerous in an accident.
It follows safety warnings earlier this year that parents were buying cheap boosters online, not realising they don’t meet Australian standards.
The ACCC has now issued a recall on seats that don’t comply with Australian standards.
What seats are being recalled?
The Child Car Booster Cushion sold by Ozo E-Store Pty Ltd is the focus of this recall. The seats don’t comply with Australia’s labelling or user instruction standards, which means they may not be fitted correctly. The ACCC says this poses an increased risk of injury if the car is in a crash.
What should you do?
Those who have purchased one of the boosters – most likely through eBay, are being contacted by email. Or you can call 03 9988 7666 or email supplier Ozo E-Store to get a full refund.
