If you bought your child their first baby doll toy for Christmas you might need to return it to John Lewis.

Trading Standards has put out a recall notice for My First Doll due to a risk that the eyes may become detached and become a severe choking hazard.

The recall was issued on December 6 and the dolls were withdrawn from sale immediately by John Lewis.

The products being recalled are:

785 00120 / 785 00122 My first doll, girl

785 00121 My first doll, boy

785 00124 Baby twin set

78500127 My first doll bumper set

This only affects batch codes 1702 and 1703 which can be found on the barcode label on the back of the box and the sew-in label; however, if yours is from a different batch and you remain concerned, Trading Standards said you shouldn't hesitate to return it.

If you have bought one of these items since September 27 2017, you are advised to stop using it, and return it to your nearest John Lewis or Waitrose Food & Home shop as soon as possible for a full refund.

A spokesman for John Lewis said: “We're very sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this product recall may cause you.”
