Parents have been warned to stop using a popular car seat "immediately" due to "potential safety concerns".

The Solar Group 1 2 3 Isofix Car Seat, which fits the description of “a light grey, black and white child car seat with harness and locking mechanism” has been urgently recalled by the Office for Product Safety and Standards.

This is because of a “potential safety concern" relating to a small internal component issue that has been identified.

However, this only affects the above product sold on Amazon and Ickle bubba between February 1 and February 23, 2024.

The affected batch codes are: Nov-2020-6, Dec-2020-7, Jan-2021-1, Mar-2021-2, Apr-2021-3 and May-2021-4.

All car seats from later batches are not affected.

“There is a small internal component issue in certain batches of car seat, which may result in the harness not locking properly when pulled,” explains the Office for Product Safety and Standards.

It adds: “This could potentially compromise the safety of the child.

“The affected products do not meet the requirements of the General Product Safety Regulations 2005.”
