The problem

Countdown has recalled its Halloween flashing tumbler cups. Young children could access the button batteries because the battery cover can be opened without the use of a tool. Button batteries can cause serious injuries and be fatal if swallowed by young children.

Details

The Halloween flashing tumbler cups were sold in Countdown supermarkets from 19 September 2016 - 28 October 2016.

Affected products are green and orange and can be identified by the item number 478646.

What to do

Stop using the cups immediately and return them to any Countdown supermarket for a full refund.

For more information, call Countdown on 0800 40 40 40.
