EDIT 27/07/17: Asda have now issued an official response with detailed information on which products are affected and what to do if you want to return them. Click here* for full information on the Asda News website.
Do you use Asda’s own branded Nappies called Little Angels? You may be surprised to find that your local Asda has pulled some of them from the shelves. This is due to a complaint of a baby that is said to have suffered a significant “chemical reaction” to one of their newborn Little Angels nappies.
For the last few days, a post with images by Jordan Bartliff, from South Yorkshire, circulated Facebook showing his premature son's scorched and blistered skin.
The concerned Father goes on to suggest that he worries there’s a “bad batch” as his three week old baby has been using them "with no problems whatsoever".
As this looks to rule out an allergic reaction, Asda have withdrawn these Nappies.
His baby who was born five weeks early, needed admitted to hospital for oxygen assistance.
Lizzy Massey, vice president of own brand at Asda said: "Our hearts go out to the Bartliff family and hope their baby son makes a full recovery soon.
"We're in touch with his dad and have collected the nappies so that we can test them along with others in the batch."
And added that "We take our responsibility to parents most seriously and as a precaution we have decided to remove our Little Angels newborn nappies from sale until we know why this happened."
If your baby has had an adverse reaction to Little Angels Nappies, then we urge you to contact your local Asda store.
A formal recall hasn't been issued on the Asda site, but it's doubtful you would be turned away should you wish to return any newborn Little Angels Nappies under the circumstances.
