Anyone sleeping on one of Argos' memory foam mattress toppers should check their beds immediately as a number of toppers do not conform to UK fire safety standards.

A popular children's swing set by Kingsport is also being recalled as it poses a risk of strangulation.

The product is incorrectly labelled as being suitable for small children as the crotch strap can break and the seat back and bottom may come apart, causing the small child to slip down and become trapped by the neck where the two shoulder straps meet, leading to strangulation.

Therefore the product does not comply with the requirements of the Toy Safety Directive.
