Kinderkraft branded MINK Children’s Car Seats manufactured by 4Kraft Sp. z o. o. and sold with type/model numbers of KKFMINKBLK0000, KKFMINKBLK00BS, KKFMINKGRM0000, KKFMINKGRM00BS, KKFMINKGRY0000, KKFMINKGRY00BS, KKFMINKNAV0000 or KKFMINKNAV00BS, batch/lot numbers ranging from KK20190314 to KK20190630, a batch/lot of KK2019 with an unknown barcode/EAN/UPC.

The recalled product consists of a children’s Car Seat, sold in a black and gray color scheme with blue trim, with a large black carry handle that is attached to anchor points located on either side of the Seat. Please see photo at left for more details.

No other designations, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other codes were listed with this recall.

The type of hazards presented in the recalled Kinderkraft branded MINK Children’s Car Seats include the reported findings that one of the handle attachment components may become loose. Consequently, the Car Seat holding a child may detach from its handle while a parent or other caregiver is carrying it. If this defect occurs while a child is being carried, it would cause the child to fall from height and suffer injuries, possibly including concussion, bone fracture and/or lacerations.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Kinderkraft branded MINK Children’s Car Seats do not comply with Europe’s specifications and requirements for child safety products.

Consequently, a recall of these Children’s Car Seats from purchasers and a withdrawal of the product from the European marketplace has been ordered.
