Asda recalls eco nappies after complaint
Thursday 01 July 2010
Supermarket giant Asda recalled a brand of its ecologically friendly nappies today.
The move came after a customer complained about the quality of the store's Eco Nappies.
Customers who have bought them are being advised to stop using them immediately and return them to an Asda store for a full refund.
Dawn Welham, product safety director at Asda, said: "When it comes to baby products, we don't take chances.
"That's why, although we've only had one complaint about these Eco Nappies in the last two years, we've already made sure they've been taken off sale.
"Independent tests are under way to find out what happened but what is clear is that the issue is unique to these Eco Nappies, as they're constructed from completely different materials to all the others we offer.
"No other nappies from our other ranges are affected.
"In the meantime, we advise any parent who uses these nappies for their children to bring them back to store for a full refund, and we apologise for that inconvenience."
Customers can contact Asda Customer Relations on 0500 100 055 for more information.
