Asda has withdrawn its Little Angels newborn nappies from sale.

This came about after Jordan Bartliff posted photos of his baby boy, who he did not want to be named, on Facebook, writing that he feared there the boy had suffered a "chemical reaction" as the result of a "bad batch" of the nappies.

The baby, born five weeks prematurely, had reportedly been wearing one of the nappies for around an hour when his skin started to appear red and sore.

Lizzy Massey, Vice President of Own Brand at Asda said; “Our hearts go out to the Bartliff family and hope their baby son makes a full recovery soon.  

"We’re in touch with his Dad and have collected the nappies so that we can test them along with others in the batch.  We are still investigating.  

"We take our responsibility to parents most seriously and as a precaution we have decided to remove our Little Angels newborn nappies from sale until we know why this happened.  

"Customers should be assured that our Little Angels newborn nappies are made in a completely closed, automated environment and thoroughly tested to make sure they meet our quality and safety standards.”

If you’re concerned in any way about your baby’s health then seek professional medical advice in the first instance.
