Primark and B&Q urgently recalling potentially dangerous products

Primark and B&Q urgently recalling potentially dangerous products

If you have either of these products, return them to the shop immediately!

Primark and B&Q are the latest major retailers to issue a product due to possible health and safety risks to the public. Over Christmas, a number of supermarkets were forced to recall items such as beef burgers, southern fried poppin' chicken and traditional chicken and mushroom pie for reasons such as plastic and metal being found in food and even 'undeclared prawns'. Now, as reported by the Birmingham Mail, clothing giants Primark and DIY store B&Q have also found that there could be problems with items that they have sold. These warnings come after Claire's Accessories recalled make-up kits just before New Year due to fears that they contained asbestos.

If customers have bought either of these products, they are urged to return them to the store for a full refund.

The items are as follows:


Primark have issued the following notice:

"Following an investigation it has come to our attention that the Large Glitter Christmas Tree Candle does not meet the Primark usual high standards for safety". We have identified a potential issue with a coating used during manufacturing that may cause the candle to burn more quickly and more aggressively than it should. With the safety of our customers at the forefront of our minds we are asking you to return this item for a full refund.

The product was on sale in our UK stores from 27 August 2017 to 7 December 2017. If you have purchased this product then please return it to any Primark store where you will be offered a full refund. You will not be required to provide proof of purchase.

Item recalled: Large Glitter Christmas Tree Candle (Kimball - 48015)



These are being recalled due to small parts on the decorations being able to be removed and may, when removed, present a choking hazard. The products were on sale between September 2017 and November 2017.

Please note that only the products detailed in this notice are affected.
