Product Safety & Recalls
phil&teds takes product safety and safe use seriously. We take the utmost care in designing products to meet or exceed safety standards all over the world. We are extremely proud of our safety record, and our proactive approach to product management. Sometimes, new concerns arise outside the testing and production framework that require immediate attention. We are proud to make positive, pro-active product improvement measures and if we consider it necessary, then we will recall a product. This is a good thing. Most recalls are "to repair", so most likely if we recall a product, you need simply register online & be sent the new part, for you to fit in your home. We know that your convenience & continued use of the product is important.
At phil&teds safety comes first that's why we pride ourselves on attaining relevant standards for all our products and keeping up to date with legislation in all our markets. The main worldwide recognised standards are the British/European (BSEN), Australian/New Zealand (AS/NZS) and American (ASTM). It is quite a challenge for us to meet or exceed product safety standards in all 50 countries that we operate in.

At that time of production, the lowest detectable limit of testing quantification was 600 mg/kg for TCEP in PU foam and no detectable TCEP was detected on the product. The cushy ride was tested in June 2015 with recently updated testing procedures to show the Cushy Ride was testing at a range of 314 to 330 mg/kg of TCEP, above the new acceptable level of 0 since TCEP was added as a hazardous material by Health Canada in 2014. Health Canada has published that any product made, in whole or in part, of polyurethane foam (PUF) contains tris (2-chlorethyl) phosphate (TCEP) and has the potential pose a chemical hazard to young children under three years of age. Migration of TCEP from PUF products as a result of young children’s mouthing behaviour may contribute to oral exposure to this substance including through fabric covering, sucking or chewing.
Neither phil&teds nor Health Canada has received any reports of incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of this product.
