PEACH 2018 BUMPER BAR SAFETY NOTICE
iCandy has a long-established history of providing high quality and safety ensured products. This reputation is of paramount importance to the brand to maintain, in order for all iCandy customers to have peace of mind that they are always receiving the best possible products available within the nursery industry.
It has recently been identified that a very limited number of iCandy Peach bumper bars are missing a plastic cap which results in there being a small hole in the bumper bar, visible at either side of the base of the hinge mechanism. It should be noted that this hole is only visible when the bumper bar has been completely removed and levered back on one side.
There has been an extremely limited number of reports of this occurring since the Peach 2018’s commercially launch in March 2018, but as part of our duty of care to all our customers we are instructing all Peach users to check their bumper bars. This can be done quickly by removing and assessing the bumper bar, see video below for reference. Please ensure you inspect both ends of the bumper bar.
Please be assured if your Peach bumper bar has both caps in place there is no risk at a later date of an issue occurring.
As with all iCandy products, extensive testing above and beyond the requirements of safety standards, including user trials were carried out at the time of Peach 2018’s launch. During the process of formal certification and due diligence, no fault was found with the bumper bar.
In the event you identify any Peach model bumper bar that you feel may need to be replaced, please contact iCandy customers services on the follow;
Telephone: 03 8555 2431
If you require further assistance locating the plastic cap, watch the following video.
IMPORTANT SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT
Replacement iCandy Buckle and Crotch Strap for the Peach 2016
As part of our on-going monitoring programme, we recently identified a very small number of iCandy buckles that have broken in use. This can result in the crotch strap coming away from the centre of the buckle. This relates specifically to the Peach 2016 model (Affected batch ranges: A10050-A10057 and A10067-A10070).
We would like to stress that the waist and shoulder harness is not affected. It should also be noted that the likelihood of the buckle failing is extremely low.
When taking into consideration all of the information at our disposal, including reviewing all returns data, testing the products and also performing routine risk assessments, we have taken the decision to offer a replacement buckle and crotch strap, at no cost, to all customers that have products within the affected batch range.
Please locate the serial and batch numbers at the top of your box or on your basket frame, prior to filling in your request form, as you will need this information. We have included a Video on where to locate this at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PifEeAbltCg
You will also find the batch and serial numbers on the base board, inside the seat unit, (you will find a velcro strip located at the rear and bottom of the seat). If you have had a replacement seat unit since purchasing your iCandy Peach, please check the base board inside your seat unit for the batch and serial number.
