Jane car seats....are they safe?

Which magazine recently did a report about some of the carrycots that are sold as carseats....I think one was a Mamas and Papas or another well known make.
I have a Jane Rebel car seat which we merely used for DS and I now want to lend to a friend but only if it's safe. Anyone know whether these seats are any good?
Thanks in advance.

There was an old thread on this. Search 'matrix' in text and you'll find it. HTH

Thanks. Have read and realise now that Which's definition of a carrycot is a flat bed so the rebel car seat is fine.

Yeah, the Matrix was the flat one (actually, it is adjustable between upright and flat)... the Rebel was never questioned, and I think the people who read (and re-read) the somewhat unclear Which article concluded they weren't saying the Matrix was unsafe, just that they hadn't been tested since last time... yadda yadda.

The one that was slated for safety was the M & P one. The Jane one are known for being very very safe
