Obviously you'll want to stop using it altogether and contact the retailer that you bought it from. If you have issues getting a refund or replacement from the store, you should try contacting the manufacturers to get further advice.

The Recall Database suggest contacting Citizens Advice, but hopefully it should be straight forward. - Info source Here

Affected Batches: 74611 & 83138

Jeez! We only ever buy Thermos flasks! I must have about 5-6 of them in various sizes. How can you trust any of them, even if they are not the above model?

As far as I know it is still not banned in China or Russia and Canada was still exporting theirs to China until just a few years ago.

It is cheap and would be a very useful material if it wasn't deadly, so it is bound to crop up in Chinese exports where chinese companies think it should go undetected. Austrailia have even found its presence in imported kids crayons for example:- http://blog.greencap.com.au/2016/03/23/asbestos-playing-dangerous-role-in-imported-goods/

Asbestos is still used massively worldwide (2 million tonnes used in 2014)
Stuff like this sneaks through the borders, it's perhaps more concerning what it's in that we don't know about.....
(Asbestos is what I do:))
