BOOTS IRELAND HAS recalled two types of baby soother over safety concerns.

The company has said it was made aware that a “potential manufacturing fault” might lead to a tear in the silicone lining of the soothers.

Boots said that all the products were removed from sale the moment it was made aware of the problem . It added that anyone who has bought the affected products can return them  “immediately for a refund or replacement with a similar item”.

The affected products are the Boots Baby Airflow Soother 0-6 months and the Boots Baby Airflow Soother 6 months.

A spokeswoman for Boots said: “The health and safety of our customers and patients is always our highest priority. We’ve recently discovered a potential manufacturing fault in two Boots Baby Soothers which might cause a small tear in the silicone teat.

“We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our customers and would like to offer our reassurances that as soon as the fault was identified as part of our quality control process we immediately removed these lines from sale. No other products are affected.
