The Office for Product Safety and Standards has issued a product recall for several flotation devices purchased from four popular online marketplaces. 

Many of the products have been identified as presenting a serious risk of drowning to the user. Some of the devices do not have the required compliance documentation or markings to demonstrate that they have been adequately conformity assessed.

Owners are advised to cease use of the products and to contact the distributor they purchased them from to request redress. The listings have been removed from their respective online sites.

Owners of the above products are advised to visit the Product Safety Alerts page on the GOV.UK website for further information.
