IGC Dorel Pty Ltd – Child Restraint Vehicle Anchor Kit Batch 022 & 023

IGC Dorel Pty Ltd (A.C.N 124 078 762) are constantly testing  its products to ensure safety and performance.  An investigation has identified a component fault in the vehicle anchor kit that only affects batch numbers 022 and 023.

As a preventative measure IGC Dorel is conducting a public recall of the vehicle anchor kit supplied with Maxi-Cosi, Safety 1st, Mother’s Choice, Go Safe, ZuZu and SAAS Car Restraints; including Mother’s Choice and Safety 1st vehicle anchor kits sold through Target, Toys ‘R’ Us, David Jones, Supercheap, Autobarn, Dimmeys and Independent Specialty retailers across Australia.

Defect:
Batches 022 and 023 of the anchor bracket are faulty. The anchor bracket connects the car restraint tether strap to the car anchorage bolt.

Hazard:
If the tether anchor bracket fails in the event of a collision, the performance of the car restraint may be impacted increasing the risk of injury to the child.

What to do:
Customers need to check if their product is affected by identifying the batch number markings on the anchor bracket.
If batch number 022 or 023 is stamped, then the item is subject to the recall and customers should immediately discontinue use. IGC Dorel will provide customers with a free vehicle anchor kit. The affected vehicle anchor kit should be returned to IGC Dorel and not the retailer. For further information on locating the batch numbers and returns please visit our website.
