National retailer recalls potentially dangerous cot

PIC: File

Big W have issued a recall on a portable cot amid fears it could cause injury to children.

Parent's who have purchased a Dymples Portacot from the retailer in the past 3 years should return the product. 

Safety testing has found the cot (Article 8286069) sold between 11 December 2014 and 24 May 2018 does not comply with Australian Standards and could pose a risk to children and infants.

The article number can be found on the label sewn into the mattress and cot. 

Big W has issued an apology saying "We take the safety of our customers very seriously, while we are not aware of any safety incidents with this product, the recall is necessary because recent laboratory testing has revealed the product does not comply with [the] Australia Standard".

For any questions or concerns customers can contact Big W on 1300 244 999
