phil&teds Recalls Their Cushy Ride Seat Liner

Health Canada has released a recall of two models of the Cushy Ride seat liner due to a hazardous chemical

Health Canada has just released a recall of the phil&teds Cushy Ride seat liner. There are two models that have been affected: the main seat liner (model #VCR) and a smaller second seat liner (model #VDKCR).

These liners come in various colours including light blue, pink, olive and mustard yellow.

When evaluated by Health Canada, they found that the seat liner was made with polyurethane foam (PUF) which contains tris (2-chlorethyl) phosphate (TCEP) which poses a chemical hazard to young children.

TCEP has the potential to cause harmful effects in children under three. It is considered a carcinogen which can cause harm at any level of exposure and it can impair fertility in males.

There have been no reports of incidents to Canadians in regards to this product. The products were sold between December 2009 and July 2015—531 units were sold in Canada.

Neither phil&teds; nor Health Canada has received any consumer reports of incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of this polyurethane foam product.

If you have a Cushy Ride seat liner you should stop using it immediately. The item should be thrown out in your garbage in a way that it can’t be reused by someone else. Contact phil&teds US for information on product replacement.
