Argos recalls Cuggl high chair over fears it could fall over when your baby is in it

ARGOS is warning parents they need to stop using a Cuggl high chair immediately over fears it could fall over when their child is in it.

The retailer has issued an urgent recall on the Cuggl Mushroom High Chair after testing revealed that it could be dangerous when used.

The Cuggl high chair could fall over and injure tots when they’re in it

If a child leans sideways in the high chair there is a risk the chair could topple over and hurt them.

The chair was originally sold for £37.99 but later had its price reduced to £29.99.

The retailer has since pulled the chairs from shelves but they may still be available to buy from third-party sellers on secondhand sites like eBay or Amazon.

Check whether your high chair has been affected by looking at the category number. Ones being recalled read 7094143.

Your product recall rights

PRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.

As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.

But it’s often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.

If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.

When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you – the customer – to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don’t there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.

If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.

They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.

In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full refund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.

You should not be charged for any recall work – such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.

Parents are being urged to return the chair to their nearest Argos store in exchange for a full refund.

You do not need to bring a receipt or proof of purchase.

An Argos spokesperson told The Sun: “We have identified a stability issue with the Argos Cuggl mushroom highchair.

“The safety of our products is our priority and so we are recalling this product.

“We are asking customers to stop using the highchair and return it to store where they will receive a full refund.

“We are also apologising for any inconvenience this may cause and urgently investigating with our supplier.”

Customers with concerns about their high chair are advised to contact their helpline on 0800 0113462 from the UK or 1800946744 from the Republic of Ireland.

It’s not the only baby product to have been recalled this year – Mothercare pulled car seats from sale over fears the chair can come detached from the base.

The baby retailer also recalled baby sleeping bags in August because they could cause tots to overheats in hot weather.

Another recall to look out for includes magic unicorn poo slime toy sold in Claire’s Accessories and Amazon that could contain dangerous chemicals.
