I dare say many people are not aware of the publically available online list of product recalls made by retailers and manufacturers.
It is stored on the pages of the Trading Standards Institute and one recall is of particular relevance to the car trade. For it is the recent safety recall by Toys R Us of their “PLAY safe 1” car seat which may have a safety issue with the harness (depending on which design is present on the seat).
More details in the link below. You may wish to consider placing this notification in your reception area if it is regularly populated by customers.
