Chicco, which has always prioritised the quality and safety of its products as core company values, also performs further tests to ensure product conformity, in line with its strict quality policy.
The tests performed on the above-mentioned batches have demonstrated a potential deviation in the mechanical behaviour of a component; for this reason and as a precautionary and voluntary measure, Chicco is inviting the users of the product to contact Chicco Customer Service for a free replacement product.
