We take the quality and safety of all products we sell extremely seriously and would like to apologise to customers affected for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have purchased this item we are asking that you return it to your nearest Boots store for a full refund.

Nuby have identified that there is a small chance that the silicone straw and spout in the lid of the cup may be damaged.

The safety and quality of our products are our top priorities and we never compromise on the health of our consumers. 

Nestlé UK and Ireland has decided, as a precautionary measure, to voluntarily recall all cans of SMA Wysoy with the above batch details as some cans have been found to contain pieces of blue plastic used to make the scoops.

Parents who feed their baby SMA Wysoy should look on the base of any cans at the best before dates or batch codes to see if they are from an affected batch. 

If you have a can from one of the affected batches, please do not feed your baby with it. 

Please contact the SMA Careline on 1800 931 832 from Ireland.   They will arrange a full refund and be able to answer any questions you might have. 

No other SMA Nutrition products are affected by this voluntary recall
The safety and quality of our products are non-negotiable priorities for our company. We sincerely apologise to our consumers for the distress and inconvenience caused by this voluntary recall.


PRODUCT RECALL


ECOVER ZERO 
NON BIO LAUNDRY LIQUID 
1.5 LITRE


Product Number - 84 36 118



Ecover is recalling bottles of Ecover Zero Non Bio Laundry Liquid 1.5 litres with two specific batch codes due to a safety concern. In Ireland, we recently learned that bottles with these batch codes were among Ecover Zero Non Bio Laundry Liquid 1.5 litres sold at Boots locations in (give towns/communities).


The affected bottles contain potassium hydroxide at hazardous levels that can cause the bottle to leak. Contact with the liquid could result in harm to skin and eyes, including causing skin burns or eye damage.


We are taking this risk very seriously, and we are recalling affected bottles sold and in inventory from Boots in specific locations..


Since this issue specifically affects bottles of Ecover Zero Non Bio Laundry Liquid with two batch codes, we are asking consumers of Boots Ireland to check whether they have the affected product by going to www.ecoverukrecall.com. We strongly advise those consumers who have an affected bottle not to open or use the product, and to handle any leaking bottles with gloved hands.


Further information about handling this product is on www.ecoverukrecall.com, where consumers can also organise careful collection of any affected bottles from home, following Covid-19 protocol, as well as offering refunds and additional support.


For Ireland consumers who wish to talk to a consumer representative, please call our recall hotline on +44345 130 2230 (charges will apply). Note that information and batch code confirmation is available at no charge at www.ecoverukrecall.com .


This issue only affects certain bottles of Ecover Zero Non Bio Laundry Liquid that were shipped since November 2020. 


We recognise that our consumers, particularly those with sensitive skin, expect more from Ecover Zero. As an organisation that lives and breathes clean, we are deeply disappointed by this and apologise for this issue. We are resolved to working as hard we can to make this right for our consumers so we can confidently continue together in our clean world revolution.

The Best Before Date (BDD) can be found on the back of the pack below the barcode.

IMPORTANT PRODUCT RECALL

Aptamil Multigrain Banana & Berry Baby Cereal 200g

Item code:  87-93-727

Bar Code – 5051594008342




Danone is recalling one batch of Aptamil Multigrain Banana and Berry cereal 7+ months (200g) with a best before date of 07.07.21. No other batches of this product or any other Aptamil products are affected.
We are recalling these products as a precaution because some have been found to contain small pieces of the blue plastic material used to make the packaging. We are therefore asking parents not to feed Aptamil Multigrain Banana and Berry cereal with this best before date to their babies.
The blue plastic is clearly visible in contrast to the cereal. If parents have fed their baby from one of the packs without noticing any pieces, it is very likely that the pack was not affected.
Nothing is more important to us than the quality of our products. We are sorry that this happened and would like to reassure you that this is an isolated incident linked to an equipment fault at our factory, which has now been resolved. Our factories maintain strict European and internationally-recognised standards, are regularly audited and meet all relevant legislation. We regret that this batch does not meet our usual standards and we have already taken action to reinforce our quality procedures.

This product is only sold within the UK and Republic of Ireland

What should you do?

If you have purchased Aptamil Multigrain Banana & Berry Baby Cereal  with a best before date of 7th July 2021, please return it back to the store where they were purchased for a refund. Upon receipt of documentation of these returns, we will reimburse the cost of goods to you.

If parents have questions, our Careline team is available 24.7 on 0800 996 1000 or via our website at https://www.aptaclub.co.uk.contact-aptaclub. You do not need your receipt.

The safety of our consumers always comes first, and this is reflected in our rigorous quality standards. We recently found that a limited number of the above condoms made earlier this year are not passing our stringent shelf-life durability tests. 

Our tests have shown that some batches which are currently on the market in UK & Ireland do not pass the requirements for burst pressure towards the end of the shelf life for the product. The expiry date of the affected batches is between Dec. 2020 and Feb. 2021.

Only for the batches of condoms affected by this issue, there could be an increase in the number of condoms that burst during application or use. Always read the label which states “Should a condom leak or burst during use, seek doctor or pharmacist assistance as soon as possible, at least within 72 hrs."

There is no immediate safety concern for consumers and only a limited number of batches are affected.

In UK and Ireland, we are recalling non-latex Durex Real Feel & Durex Latex Free condoms with the batch numbers listed below.

Please return any affected product to the store where they were bought from for a full refund.

Medela Swing Breast Pump - Item code: 5476860

Medela Freestyle Electrical Breast Pump - Item code: 1227513

Medela Swing-Maxi Double Electrical Breast Pump - Item code: 6097456

Our supplier (Medela) has identified a potential safety issue with the detachable power plugs that come with the above products. As a precautionary measure they have launched a voluntary replacement programme for (Type G) detachable power plugs. This replacement programme is in response to a few isolated reports in which a detachable power plug reportedly broke apart as the plug was being removed from the wall, exposing live parts. These plugs were sold with the products from 2012 to September 18, 2016.

The pumps themselves are not affected, only the detachable plugs.

As a precautionary measure, Medela asks customers to comply with the following:

1.    While removing an affected power supply adapter from the socket, please remove the plug slowly and deliberately, apply as little force as possible, and handle the whole adapter with utmost attention and caution. If you apply a certain level of force, an affected detachable power plug might break apart.

2.    If the detachable power plug breaks, turn off the power source before removing it from the wall. Remove the detachable power plug from the power socket and do not use it before a replacement is sent to you.

3.    You may use the breast pumps Swing and Swing Maxi with batteries.

 

If you have an affected plug, please contact Medela immediately. They will send you a free plug replacement as soon as possible. Please keep the power supply base, which is not affected. You can register online for your free plug at www.medela.com/ukplug or contact Medela Customer Service at 0044 (0)161 776 0400.
