In July Asda recalled ten different ballpoint pen items due to unsafe chemicals in the ink. There has today been a further recall involving another ten different packs of ballpoint pens because of the same issue.
If you have any of the pens from either recall you shouldn't not use them, but should return them to stores for a refund. You don't need your receipt or original packaging to get your refund as this is a safety recall.
The recall follows below in full:
