If your batch no. starts with 045 through to 365 and ends with 12 or starts with 001 through to 195 and ends with 13, then you have an affected iron.

Any numbers outside this range are not affected.

Please ensure you are only returning stock from the affected batches as credit will not be issued for stock that doesn’t fall within the recall.
