Argos has issued safety warnings on five Mamas & Papas car seats revealing they may crack in a crash.
The store is recalling at least three types of the car seats sold in Irish shops. It is feared the shells of the seats could be at risk of cracking under the impact of a collision.
In a statement, Argos said: ‘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 above 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.’
The products are currently unavailable for sale.
