Notices on the Argos, Ikea, Golden Bear and Trading Standards websites are recommending that owners of these sleep bags, bib and toy return them immediately for a full refund.
Owners of any of these products should stop using them immediately.
Argos Baby Sleep Bag
The Argos Baby Sleep Bag was found to contain too much insulation, which could cause a child to overheat and increase the chance of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (Sids). The two affected sleeping bags can be identified by their style numbers 134877764 and 134878142. Either bag can be returned to any Argos or Sainsbury’s store for a full refund, and no proof of purchase is required.

The fight against unsafe children’s products
Which? testing has identified scores of products that pose a health risk to children.
Our testing of slime found four that failed to meet EU safety standards due to excessive levels of boron. Exposure can lead to irritation, diarrhoea and vomiting in the short term, and may impair fertility and cause harm to unborn children in pregnant women.
The Cry Babies Nala doll was found to contain too high a concentration of phthalates, which can lead to asthma and liver problems. Following our tests, the doll was subject to a recall.
We’ve also found Halloween costumes too flammable to be legally sold in the UK.
