Mamas And Papas Recall: Armadillo Flip Pushchairs Safety Check Required
Do you have a Mamas & Papas Armadillo Flip XT or Armadillo Flip Pushchair*? The company has just sent out a 'Quality Notice' to customers that have purchased these requesting that they bring them into a store so that they can be sent for testing and repair.
The issue is described as a "minor technical issue" of a "loose catch". This can mean that "the seat slips backward slightly when the baby is facing you and being pushed".
They stress that "it is not dangerous" and that there have been no reports of any child being injured.
If Mamas and Papas have your email details from an online purchase or any warranties then you will be receiving this email directly from them if you have purchased the affected pushchair. If you cannot get to a store then they will be arranging home collection so that the pushchairs can be repaired. They are not offering refunds as they are instead focusing on repairing the pushchairs.
EDIT: Mamas & Papas have confirmed that they are providing replacement pushchairs whilst repairs are being carries out and that customers will be given a £50 voucher as a goodwill gesture.
If you have any questions about the quality notice and safety check you can click on the link above or contact Mamas and Papas customer service on 03332 412154. If you purchased this pushchair from any other store it may also be affected and you should contact Mamas and Papas either through the above link or by phone.
