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. 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.
