ARGOS: Recall - Animal Tracking Explorer Kit catalogue number 076/3976

Found 1st Nov 2009
Ok........ so the more honest of you will have bought the 'Animal Tracking' kit from argos previously, but that contained lots of nasties in their plaster mix, so what they are saying is to flush the lot and email them for a replacement.

I know i will be using it with my previously purchased animal tracker kit and not to rejuvenate my old paddington bear moulds.

Here is the official recall notice:

Moved from Freebies to Misc.

It's a product recall notice. I'd guess that proof of purchase might be required, even if the actual product is not returned ?
