Product recalls are issued when an item is unsafe for customers. This could be due to an item being broken or faulty. When a product is recalled, it is immediately taken off shelves.

Ladybird is recalling a children’s book sold in Tesco, Asda, and Sainsbury’s.

The book brand is warning customers of a fault with the item and advising them to return it to their nearest store.

The supermarkets have also issued customer notices to inform shoppers on what to do.

Tesco said: “We’ve been made aware that Ladybird Books are recalling the Hey Duggee book ‘Duggee and the Dinosaurs’.

“This is due to a manufacturing fault on some copies, where the foil on the book cover can be peeled of.

“Small parts of foil could be a choking hazard to small children.”

The ‘Hey Duggee – Dugee and the Dinosaurs’ book is the only ‘Hey Duggee’ book affected.

Tesco added: “No other Hey Dugee titles are affected by this issue.”

The book’s ISBN code is 9781405948630.

Tesco recommended that customers return the book to their nearest store, where a full refund will be given.

The supermarket said: “Please keep this book away from small children.

“You can return it to a Tesco store where a full refund will be given.

“No receipt is required.”

Asda and Sainsbury’s issued similar advice to their customers.

Asda said: “Please bring it back to your nearest store where you will be given a full refund.

“You do not need your receipt.”

On the Sainsbury’s website, a statement reads: “We are not willing to take any risks where the safety of our products is concerned and so we are asking customers who have purchased this product not to use it and to return the item to their nearest Sainsbury’s store for a full refund when they next visit.”

The book costs £4 at Tesco, Asda, and Sainsbury’s.

In other product recall news, Tesco has issued a recall on its Cottage Pie Baby Food because it may contain pieces of blue plastic.

This makes it unsafe to eat, therefore Tesco has recommended that customers return the product to stores for a full refund.
