If you've got a hot water bottle keeping you warm at night, you might want to re-think it.
Victorian authorities seized more than 4000 'Hot Water Bag' products from Wens Bros Trading Pty Ltd's Clayton warehouse and Hallam retail store after a complaint from a customer who was burnt when the bag's seam split. Ouch!
The customer, who bought the ‘natural latex hot water bag’ from a Ringwood discount store, suffered minor burns to her calf. Supply was traced to Wens Bros Trading. It is unclear how many of the defective items were sold.
Consumer Affairs Minister Marlene Kairouz on Monday said the bottles failed to meet mandatory safety standards and had been recalled.
