A vacuum flask is being withdrawn from the market because it is partially made with asbestos.
The Leopard brand, 1 litre product features a blue flask with white cup and the label text reads Leopard Casa y Jardin- Termo 1 litro.
It is potentially dangerous because there are asbestos fibres in the separators of the double glass wall of the flask.
The Chinese-made product, reference number 0106090304 and barcode 401060903041, does not comply with the REACH regulation. Its withdrawl from the market has been ordered by the authorities.
