An urgent recall has been issued for a range of jewellery sold in Ireland due to the “risk of radiation”.
The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission confirmed on Wednesday that a safety issue has been identified with a number of wearable health products, including bracelets and necklaces.
A spokesperson said: “The risk associated with the product is that of radiation, the products have low levels of radiation that may cause the user harm over prolonged use.”
The alert includes six products which were all for sale in Ireland. The products involve bracelets, necklaces and an eye mask.
The CCPC has identified one purchase of an affected product by an Irish consumer, but fears there could be more as they were all available to buy online.

Anyone who has bought any of the above products is urged to stop using it, place it in a safe place and contact the Environmental Protection Agency for instructions on how to dispose of it safely.
The CCPC said: “The CCPC has confirmed that one of the Magnetix products, the sportboost bracelet, was purchased by an Irish consumer, however as these products were available to purchase online they may have been purchased by other Irish consumers.
“If you purchased one of these products, please discontinue use immediately and store away in a safe place. Please contact the EPA at (053) 916 0600 for instructions on how to dispose of the product.”
