A young mother has claimed she found a razor blade in a nappy, moments before putting it on her 18-month-old daughter, Eliza.

Josie Gordon, 21, from Runcorn, Cheshire, spread out the Asda-branded "Little Angels" nappy on the changing mat and claimed a shard of metal caught her eye.

Gordon told The Express: "Eliza can be quite fidgety so we usually open the nappy and put it out as she doesn't always like being changed.

"There was something sticking out, I felt it and was incredibly sharp. So I moved her away, picked it up, and in the politest way, I was like 'what the hell is that?!'"

Gordon called the customer service department at Asda and was asked to bring the nappy and blade into the store.

She said the woman on the phone allegedly said it was "very naughty" of them to have done that.

After complaining, Gordon was offered a double refund (£9) but was told Asda would have to investigate the incident by getting into contact with the suppliers before the brand was recalled to stores.

The mother-of-one said she wasn't bothered about the refund but was more concerned about the safety of her child if she had not noticed the blade.

Gordon's partner, Bryan Bennett, 32, said, according to The Mirror: "We don't always check the nappies when you get them out, we just open them. You trust them to be clean and hygienic, and if it had gone on my daughter it would've been really horrible, we were really shaken."

A spokeswoman for Asda told HuffPost UK Parents: "We take complaints of this nature extremely seriously and have rigorous safety tests in place.

"Out of the millions of packets of nappies we’ve sold this year, this is the first incident of its kind.

"We’re conducting a full investigation, but can now confirm that no razor blades are used within the factory.”
