Supermarkets, retailers, and companies recall items due to health and safety issues. Normally, when an item is recalled, customers are advised to return it to stores where a full refund will be given.

In recent days and weeks, British retailers from Next to Sainsbury’s have urgently recalled products that are unsafe to use.

As well as the companies, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) have released details of recalled items on their websites.

If they have already bought a potentially hazardous item, customers should return it to their nearest store for a full refund, and no receipt is required.

Which retailers are currently recalling products?

Next

The Oakley Mirror, which comes attached to a wooden board and three hooks, is being recalled by Next because it is unsafe to use.

On its website, Next has stated that there is a possible construction issue with the mirror that means it could cause harm to users.

The retailer said: “Next recalls Oakley Mirror due to a potential issue with the construction of the mirror which may pose a risk of it falling.”

It has urged customers to return the product to their nearest store as soon as they can.

Tesco

Tesco is recalling various items, including earphones, books, and food products.

The company issued a statement to explain that a pair of wireless earphones sold at its stores is unsafe to use.

It said: “Kondor Limited is recalling KitSound Funk25 wireless earbuds.

“This is because there is a risk of the charging case overheating if it’s connected to a power source that’s more than five volts.”

The supermarket added customers should “stop using this product immediately”.

Tesco is also recalling a Ladybird Book called ‘Duggee and the Dinosaurs’.

Due to a manufacturing fault on some copies, the foil on the book cover can be peeled off and be a hazard for young children.

As for food products, Tesco is recalling its Cottage Pie baby food because it may contain pieces of blue plastic.

The product has a best before date of June 12, 2022, and the supermarket has advised customers to bring it back to stores if they have bought it.

Asda

Asda is also recalling the ‘Duggee and the Dinosaurs’ book, as well as another book from the ‘Hey Duggee’ series.

Last week, the supermarket issued a product recall on the book ‘Duggee and the Magical Unicorn’.

The foil on the cover of this book can also be peeled off, consequently with the potential to be harmful to children.

Asda told customers: “Please take this book away from small children and return it to the retailer where you bought it for a full refund (there is no need to produce a receipt).”

Spar

Spar has issued a food recall on its Enjoy Local Coconut Jam Delights.

This is due to the presence of undeclared sulphites.

The product is therefore a possible health risk for anyone with a sensitivity to sulphur dioxide and sulphites, the FSA said.

The coconut jam delights have a best before date of July 23, 2021, and come in a multi-pack.

The Spar branches selling the items are located in Northern Ireland only.
