IKEA and Argos have announced a recall of two separate baby products after concerns that the items present choking and overheating hazards.

Argos said the level of insulation in their Baby Sleeping Bags (which are also sold by Sainsbury’s) “exceeded the specific rating”, and told parents that babies could overheat inside them.

Meanwhile, Swedish furniture company, IKEA, said a button on some of its bibs presented a choking hazard should it become detached.

Argos and Sainsbury’s said the specific sleeping bags involved in the recall are those with the style numbers 134877764 and 134878142.

IKEA said its ‘Matvra’ brand of bibs is being recalled.
