A batch of hearing aid batteries have been recalled due to a risk of the items exploding during use or if depleted.

ZeniPower mercury-free hearing aid batteries with best before dates of 08.2018 and 09.2018 are subject to a manufacturing fault resulting in a ‘low risk’ of the batteries exploding.

The manufacturers describe the warning as a ‘precautionary measure’ as no adverse incidents resulting in an injury have been reported.

Pharmacists and other retailers which have affected stock on their shelves have been advised to remove them immediately and return any remaining stock to their original supplier.

No other batches of ZeniPower mercury-free hearing aid batteries are affected. If in doubt, do not use the batteries.

Date: 17th May 2017.
