The Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Authority (MHRA) in the UK has issued a pregnancy test recall for a particular batch of Clear & Simple digital tests.
More than 58,000 of the tests have been distributed throughout the UK. While Ireland is not thought to be affected, it is possible that tests bought in Northern Ireland or online could be part of the faulty batch.
The test manufacturer announced that the faulty lot of Clear & Simple Digital Pregnancy Tests produced a small number of false positive results.
