Argos is warning parents across the UK and Ireland to stop using one its cot duvets amid fears it could cause children to overheat.

The retailer is urging parents to return the Washable Cotbed 4.0 Tog Duvet, catalogue number 790/3076 stating that “the level of insulation provided by this duvet exceeds the specified rating.”

The duvet was advertised at a four tog, which according to guidelines is suitable for children aged 12 months and over.

However, routine tests discovered the level of insulation it provided exceeds specified tog guidelines, which means children could overheat while using it.
