We have just been made aware of a recent recall by supermarket giant Sainsbury's and Argos. There have been fears that two baby sleeping bags sold by Sainsbury's and Argos “may cause an infant to overheat”.
They have been recalled because the insulation provided by the sleeping bags may be higher than what the label claims.
The sleeping bags were both labelled as having a 0.5 to 1 tog ratings which the NHS recommends using in warmer weather in rooms which are between 20C and 27C. The information has not been released as to what tog the sleeping bags actually were.
The recall concerns two styles of sleeping bag, one with a vehicle pattern and one with a yellow floral pattern. The product code for the toy-patterned bag is 134878142, and the product code for the floral-patterned bag is 134877764. You can find the product code on the inside label, usually on the back of the label.
A Tu clothing spokesperson said, “We have identified this sleep bag design may exceed its tog rating.”
“We are asking customers to stop using this product immediately and return it for a full refund. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.”
A full refund is available when you return the product, and no proof of purchase is needed. Shoppers with any questions should contact Argos on 0800 028 6658 or email [email protected]. The helpline is open between 8am and 8pm Monday to Sunday.
The sleeping bags are no longer listed for sale, but both were available for £14 each.
