RECALL: ELC / Mothercare Giant Activity Cubes

RECALL: ELC / Mothercare Activity Cubes

ELC and Mothercare group have issued a product recall on two of their Giant Activity Cubes as they may have been exposed to damp and humid conditions and begin to form mould.

As well as being unpleasant, mould spores can be problematic to those with respiratory conditions such as asthma, and can also irritate certain skin conditions.

The two products affected were sold through ELC and Mothercare stores, and if you have one you are advised to check the batch number. If yours is in the affected batch you are advised to return it to store for a full refund.

You can read the recall notice on the Trading Standards website here, or on the Mothercare website here*. The recall notice follows below in full:
