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
 
Risk type:  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.
 

Measures ordered by public authorities (to: Other): Withdrawal of the product from the market
