What’s happened?

As a precaution, George is recalling the above Boys Swim Shorts because the quality of the mesh lining is not to our required specification.

If you have purchased these swim shorts, please take the product back to your local Asda store for a full refund. No receipt or packaging is necessary. We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.

What does "mesh lining is not to our required specification" do to the wearer?

they don't say but there was a incident from another retailer last year here due to netting (not for the squeamish)

Maybe they've had complaints of similar nature.

Not surprised with these supermarkets, they JUST do specifications and insufficient quality check to their OWN specification, namely, a lack of MEN/WOMEN deployed to test for compliance with their own specifications. They let the customers do the quality control and then they go to beat up the manufacturers and then blame them for not meeting specifications.
.
The horse meat incident was their unchecked specifications too.

My little boy has the hibiscus ones and after swimming we found that the mesh lining tangled around his boy parts causing him distress and injury

My son has these shorts, we had a nasty incident with them that caused his little boys bits getting caught in the netting, cut all the netting out straight away, pleased to see Asda have recalled them, they are completely unsuitable for little one's.

Going by the latest comments seems to be the same issues!

Looks like least not you/son with the same issues, hopefully it'll save another child/parent going through the same problem

My son has the skull ones really glad we didn't use these ones after reading this and stuck to his Spiderman and minion short's

We always cut out the mesh. Have heard the horror stories before. Don't know why they still make them with it in!

The woman that you dealt with needs a lesson in CS. Phone Asda head office and state you do not expect to be out of pocket on a product recall of any nature especially one that could have injured your child. Receipt or no receipt, Asda are dealing with a damage limitation issue here not a cost saving exercise.

My son has these and got his bits caught on holiday and was screaming with pain. I have sent asda a letter and I will be going in to complain when I get back from holidays as my son is now scared for life and is refusing to wear netted shorts as he is scared. It's has cuts his little bits and made them swell up and asda don't seem to be doing a lot about recalling them considering the damage they are causing kids already!!! Someone is going to end up badly hurt and maybe then it will be taken seriously!!!!
