99p Stores have today issued a product recall on their Baby Foam Blocks as a sample has failed product testing by producing small parts. As this is a toy specifically aimed at babies there are restrictions on the size of parts to prevent choking, so this product has been recalled.
Although it isn't specified in the recall notice Family Bargains are part of the same chain of stores so if you have bought anything matching the description from that store it might be wise to check the barcode to see if it is the same product.
The recall notice can be read on the Trading Standards website here, and here it is in full:
