Failure to meet flammability requirements
The range of boy’s and girl’s dressing gowns are being recalled as they fail to meet the “stringent flammability requirement as set out by George and the UK Nightwear (Safety) Regulation.”
The issue is caused by the cotton jersey hood lining on the gowns, which come in a variety of plain colours and prints.
Asda is advising customers who have purchased any of the items affected by the recall to stop using them immediately and return them to their nearest store for a full refund. Customers do not need a receipt to return the item and no other dressing gowns sold by Asda are affected.
Alternatively, you can contact Asda Customer Relations for further information on 0800 952 0101.
In a statement, the supermarket said, “We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused, but as safety is our top priority we hope you will understand the reasons for this action.”
