Safety alert: Argos Cuggl Mushroom high chair recalled

Children using the Argos exclusive high chair are at risk of injury

A high chair on sale at Argos is being recalled as it poses a risk to children, Argos has confirmed.

Testing has found that the folding Cuggl Mushroom high chair, which is an Argos exclusive, could topple over if a child leans sideways in it, potentially injuring them.

Read on for our advice on what to do if you own the Cuggl Mushroom high chair.

What to do if you're affected

If you own the Cuggl Mushroom high chair, you should stop using it immediately. You can identify the chair using its Argos catalogue number, which is 7094143. It's important to note that no other high chair on sale at Argos is affected by this issue.

You can return the potentially dangerous high chair to any Argos store right away for a full refund, with or without the receipt.

If you have any questions or are unsure whether you own an affected high chair, you should contact the following numbers:

Injury-risk high chair still available online

The Cuggl Mushroom High Chair is no longer available to buy from Argos, which exclusively sells Cuggl baby and child products.

However, three days after Argos announced the recall, we found that some third party sellers were still selling the potentially unsafe high chair as new on online marketplaces, including eBay and Amazon Marketplace.

We requested that both retailers urgently remove listings of the affected Cuggl Mushroom High Chair, and we are pleased to say that both have now done so.

A spokesperson from eBay told us: 'Sellers aren't allowed to list items that are have been recalled. These items have been removed and the sellers informed.'

High chair safety

As part of our expert high chair reviews, we perform rigorous safety tests to help you shop with confidence.

For every high chair that passes through our lab, we assess build quality and test forward, rearward and sideways stability to check that the product won't topple over.

We haven't tested the Cuggl Mushroom high chair at the time of writing, but you can read our expert verdict on more than 60 models by going to our high chair reviews.

End dangerous products

This is the third safety alert on a baby and child product we've reported on since July 2019.

Our own tests have uncovered safety issues on a range of other baby and child products in recent years, from car seats to stair gates.

Britain's product safety regime is no longer fit for purpose and so we're pushing for urgent reform to stop unsafe products entering our homes.
