QFix Booster Seat - March 2018
In March 2018, Venture Distribution issued a voluntary recall of certain venture QFix child booster seats due to a potential safety issue with a component in these seats. This potentially affected component was used in production batches sold between January 2018 to April 2018. Parents who purchased a Qfix Booster seat during that time should review the safety waring notice to check if their seat is impacted by the voluntary recall and for further information.
Venture UK identified the cause of this potential issue and can confirm that Qfix Booster seats outside the batch involved are not affected. The specific component is not used in any other Venture QFix product.
