Tests have shown that a flower decoration on the Boots Kids Sunglasses can become detached, exposing a screw, which the retailer has identified as a potential safety risk.

The affected products are branded as Boots Kids Sunglasses, style BOK002F, item code 64 11 665

Style: BOK002F. The item code can be found on the arm of the product.

In a statement Boots said: “As the sunglasses are not of the high standard we expect, we’re asking that if you have bought this product that you return it to your nearest Boots store for a refund.

“If you’ve bought the item for someone else please let them know about this as soon as possible.
