The supplier behind charms believed to contain high levels of cancer-causing chemicals has said they immediately suspended sales after the discovery.
Manchester-based RMS International, which provided the charms to The Entertainer, said it had also started re-testing all other relevant products.
A spokesman said:
We have been importing loom bands into the UK for a number of months and more recently added the charms. Our quality control department maintains due diligence and holds all the required paperwork and test reports.
When we became aware of other products in the market that may contain phthalates we suspended delivery and further shipments of any item containing a PVC charm. We also re-initiated testing of all relevant products.
They added that the problem only involved some of the PVC loom charms, not the loom bands, and advised any customers with concerns to return their product to where they bought it from.
