Aldi has issued an urgent warning to shoppers who have recently bought its garden furniture, including the hanging egg chair and rattan corner sofa set.
The budget supermarket has been made aware of a safety issue regarding the cushion covers, supplied as part of its garden furniture range, and sold between February and April.
‘As a precautionary measure, we are sending replacement cushion covers to all customers who have purchased the following garden furniture products between 13th February 2022 and 20th April 2022 only,’ Aldi said in a statement.
