BBC Panorama discovered that Amazon are selling suspect child car seats on their UK store. Amazon said they “regret” the seats have appeared online again and they have now been removed.
In 2013 a trading standards investigation found that confirmed the child seat would be torn apart if involved in a 30 mph car crash.
Amazon’s UK chief Doug Gurr said, “Automated algorithms [survey] over five billion product pages every day and we monitors tens of millions of customer reviews.
In a follow-up statement, the firm added: “Safety is extremely important to us and we regret that these products were available from third-party sellers using our stores.
“After a thorough investigation, we identified the issue and are removing these products, and we’re also contacting each customer who purchased one of these products to explain the situation and issue a refund.
“We will continue to leverage and improve our tools and technology to ensure only safe and compliant car seats are available worldwide.”
