Found 6th Jul 2016
Argos have issued 2 recall notices, the first one is for their Simple Value Food Processor (previously Value Range) as they say due to a faulty part the food processor can be operated with the lid removed in some cases. Thought this worth sharing as I'm sure due to the price they sell it at, it will be a very popular item,
They say;
Important safety notice – Product safety warning
Simple Value Food Processor – White Catalogue No. 423/5345
Previously branded "Argos Value range" and sold under the same catalogue number.
We have identified a potential safety concern with the Simple Value Food Processor. In some instances it is possible to inadvertently disable the Safety Interlock Mechanism on the lid.
It is possible for the Safety Interlock to break apart from the lid. In some instances the broken part can become trapped which means that it bypasses the Safety Interlock Mechanism and allows the food processor to be operated with the lid removed.
It is important for customers to stop using the product immediately and return it to their nearest store for a refund.
If you still have the box, Argos receipt or ordering details the Catalogue Number (423/5345) will be shown.

If you do not have the original packaging you can identify the affected products by looking under the base of the product for the product rating plate label. Affected products will be marked with the Model No. XB9018 on the product rating plate label

The second recall is for the Chad Valley Pipsie the Interactive Horse, will pop links / info for the above & this in 1st post

Important safety notice – Product safety warning
Chad Valley Pipsie the Interactive Horse (Catalogue Number 404/6510)
A fault has been identified where the apples could break apart and release the internal magnet. This is a choking hazard and if ingested could lead to internal injuries.

Please note that there have been no reported customer incidents.


If you have a Pipsie the Interactive Horse please remove the Apples immediately and dispose of them with normal household waste.

As a replacement to the apples, we are offering customers a pair of cupcakes for Pipsie to enjoy which will work in the same way.
