Product recall

According to publisher DC Thomson, in a small number of cases the plastic covering of the snap-band appears to have become separated from the inner of the product, resulting in exposed metal.

The company say that the product has been thoroughly tested and found compliant with all relevant legislation.

However, the product is being recalled as a precautionary measure.
