ARGOS is recalling pillows and coffee makers of its own brand over fears they are unsafe for customers.
The pillows don’t meet the required level of fire and safety standards, while the glass of the coffee maker could break due to inconsistent thickness, which could injure its users.
The product recall applies to Argos Home Goose Feather and Down Pillow with catalogue number 8144274, and it cost £20.
It also applies to Argos Home Three and Eight Cup Cafetières with catalogue numbers 8477305 and 8479176 – and they cost £7 and £10, respectively.
A Cafetière, also known as a French press, is a coffee brewing device with a plunger and built-in filter screen that presses hot water through ground coffee.
If you’ve bought any of the above products, you should stop using them immediately and return it to an Argos store for a full refund.
You don’t need to have the receipt to get your money back.
Customers should be careful when handling the coffee maker and package it well before returning it to the store to prevent injury, Argos warned on its website.
Its statement said: “We thank you for your co-operation and apologise for any inconvenience.”
Your product recall rights
PRODUCT recalls are an important means of protecting consumers from dangerous goods.
As a general rule, if a recall involves a branded product, the manufacturer would usually have lead responsibility for the recall action.
But it’s often left up to supermarkets to notify customers when products could put them at risk.
If you are concerned about the safety of a product you own, always check the manufacturer’s website to see if a safety notice has been issued.
When it comes to appliances, rather than just food items, the onus is usually on you – the customer – to register the appliance with the manufacturer as if you don’t there is no way of contacting you to tell you about a fault.
If you become aware that an item you own has been recalled or has any safety noticed issued against it, make sure you follow the instructions given to you by the manufacturer.
They should usually provide you with more information and a contact number on its safety notice.
In some cases, the manufacturer might ask you to return the item for a full redund or arrange for the faulty product to be collected.
You should not be charged for any recall work – such as a repair, replacement or collection of the recalled item.
The Sun has asked the retailer to confirm when the products were sold, but we haven’t yet heard back.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact Argos on its helpline 0800 0113462. It’s open between 8am-8pm all days of the week.
More on money
Earlier this year, Argos urgently warned parents to stop using one of its own branded duvets for cots over fears that it could cause babies to overheat.
Morrisons and Aldi have also recalled ready meals and chocolate chips over fears they could trigger allergic reactions.
And recently, Lidl issued recalls on salt and pepper as they could contain GLASS.
