Thousands of women are feared to have been falsely told they are pregnant after taking faulty pregnancy tests.
Officials warned 58,000 faulty Clear & Simple digital pregnancy tests were being recalled by the Chinese manufacturer, shares Daily Mail.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) announced a batch of the tests were giving out false positive readings.
They issued the alert about the manufacturing error yesterday. But the body, which polices the safety of medical products, today admitted it received notice of the recall a month ago.
The body, which polices the safety of medical products, has now urged all women who have bought one of the tests to check theirs isn’t affected.
The manufacturer, based in Guangzhou in China, estimates more than 58,000 affected tests have been distributed in the UK.
