‘Unsafe’ pens are recalled

Have your say

WARNINGS have been issued over unsafe children’s colouring pens.

Northumberland County Council’s Public Protection Service has found some batches of pens, particularly those associated with velvet art toys, have failed safety testing as the end closure easily detaches and could pose a choking hazard.

The pens are branded Write Stuff and the packaging is labelled Chelford Ltd, Manchester, M6 6JD, item code TA1003, batch numbers 20403 and 20402.

There is a product recall and they should be removed from sale immediately.
