A baby plate sold by Primark has been recalled after it was found to have unsafe amounts of lead and formaldehyde.
The ‘Winnie the Pooh plate’ has been sold in the fast fashion brand’s stores since January 2022.
Despite only being found in trace amounts, the levels of lead and formaldehyde found exceed those permitted by EU regulations and could pose a safety risk if ingested.
Customers who may have purchased the plate are being asked to voluntarily return the plate to any Primark store for a full refund.
No proof of purchase or receipt will be required in order to receive the refund.
In its recall notice, the company stated the plate “does not meet the Primark usual high standards for safety”.
“With the safety of our customers at the forefront of our minds, we are conducting a voluntary recall and invite you to return this product to any Primark store for a full refund,” the company said.
The product number of the Winnie the Pooh plate is 6041901 and it has been sold in stores since January 13, 2022.
