A12/1293/13

Denmark

Category: Childcare articles and children's equipment

Product: Reclining cradle

Brand: BabySam

Name: Venus Baby Seat

Type/number of model: BabySam item number: 234527 Supplier item number: CA-BO-208-03 BabySam PO number: H0169297

Batch number/Barcode: 5700000181239

OECD Portal Category: 54000000 - Baby Care

Description: Static or rocking reclining cradle with adjustable backrest, adjustable toy bar, waist belt with crotch strap and flexible textile carry handles.

Country of origin: China

Click on the picture to enlarge

Injuries

There is a risk of injuries because: - the child´s finger may be pinched or crushed between the toy bar and the seat. - if the child leans forward the cradle can tip over due to lack of stability. - if the stitching on the carrying handles is damaged during use, the handles can detach from the seat and there is a risk that the carer drops the cradle.

Due to the design and colour of the toy bar there is a risk that it could be mistaken for a rigid carrying handle, as found on babies' car seats for example. If the carer lifts the cradle by the toy bar the seat will tip backwards very quickly causing the child to fall out. The harness will not prevent this from happening because it only consists of a waist belt, which the child can slide out of should it fall backwards.

Two accidents reported.

The product does not comply with the relevant European standard EN 12790.

Compulsory measures: Withdrawal of the product from the market

In order to give a better view on the overall level of enforcement, including the follow-up activities of the national market surveillance authorities, the Commission RAPEX team has decided to publish on the RAPEX website also the names of the countries that have found the notified product on their market and have taken appropriate measures (and have submitted a reaction to a RAPEX notification as a consequence).

Information about the reacting countries is available in the RAPEX weekly overviews in the column 'Products were found and measures were taken also in'. The Commission RAPEX team will publish reactions sent (from May2009 onwards) to 2009 RAPEX notifications.
