An urgent recall has been issued for a child's car booster seat with fears it could be used incorrectly.
GadgetFreak's car booster seat for toddlers and children — which is available from Kogan marketplaces nationally online — is missing the mandatory warning labels and information required on all child restraints for use on vehicles.
Child seats without the correct safety warning label may be used incorrectly, resulting in an increased risk of serious injury or death if an accident were to occur.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) advised all customers who purchased the product, made by Digicom Ventures Pty Ltd, to return it to Gadgetfreak for a full refund.

Series of recalls in recent weeks
On Wednesday, Aldi issued an urgent plea to customers, due to the low number of returns relating to a toy recall which was issued almost two years ago.
In September 2020, Aldi recalled the Jack 'N' Jill Wooden Block Sets, in the Farm, Ocean and Jungle varieties due to the possibility of small magnets detaching and falling off, posing a choking risk in young children.
