ACCC Slams Faulty Car Seat Sellers

By Mendelson Tiu | Tuesday | 01/09/2009

The ACCC is warning consumers of unsafe child car restraints after receiving a second product recall by an online trader.

According to the ACCC, eBay trader Doreen 3058 supplied the WORWO baby car seats via eBay Australia in May and June this year. The seats were manufactured by Taizhou Ganen Car Appliance Co Ltd and breached the mandatory safety standard for child restraint systems for use in vehicles as they were supplied without an upper tether strap.

Australian Competition and Consumer Commission Deputy Chair, Peter Kell said, "I am pleased that when ACCC raised its concerns with eBay trader Doreen 3058, the trader immediately withdrew the products and registered the car seats for a consumer recall at www.recalls.gov.au. If people have this product, they should return it to the supplier."

"All suppliers and parents should make the safety of children their top priority. Suppliers, including online traders, must ensure that the car seats they supply meet the mandatory product safety standard. When selecting and using child car restraints, parents should always ensure that the restraint carries a label or sticker stating that it meets Australian/New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS 1754)," says Kell.

Mr Kell also strongly advised parents to take these crucial steps to ensure the car restraints they use are safe:

  • Never use second-hand or hand-me-down restraints that have been in an accident or have no current standard label or instructions for installation
  • Whenever possible, use specialist car restraint installers to avoid common mistakes in DIY installation
  • Always check that the child car restraint is in good condition with no frayed or broken straps and buckles
  • Teach your child to always ask to use a restraint or seat belt.
