Residents in south Lincolnshire who shop at Asda are being warned that some of the store’s dummies have been recalled over a choking risk for the second time in two years.
The supermarket giant was alerted to a possible fault in packs of Little Angels 2 Newborn Soothers 0+ Months after a customer complained on Facebook that the teat had detached from the hard casing in one device.
The baby was unharmed.
In January 2013, Asda asked parents to return packs of the Little Angels Cherry Soother when a fault was identified.
An Asda spokesman said: “ These are two isolated incidents involving different products. We are yet to conduct our investigation to identify the cause of the problem, but we take any complaints about baby products extremely seriously, which is why we have taken the decision to recall the soothers as a precaution.”
Customers have been asked to either dispose of the products or return them to an Asda store as a “precaution” for a full refund. A statement from the store said: “We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.”
No other Asda Little Angels dummies have been affected.
