Tesco have recalled these slow cookers which present a possible "risk of electric shock."

Shoppers have been warned of a product recall on slow cookers which may present a “risk of electric shock.”

Tesco said it is recalling the 3.0Litre and 5.5Litre Slow Cooker after they identified that on a very small number of units, the plug may unexpectedly break, exposing live parts – posing a risk of electric shock.

The product recall said: “As a precautionary measure, we are recalling affected model numbers fitted with KDJ plugs from customers. No other Tesco products are known to be affected.

“If you have an affected slow cooker please stop using it immediately.

“Please return the affected product to store where a full refund or replacement will be given. No receipt is required.”

The products affected are ones sold between July 1, and December 31, 2015 fitted with ‘KDJ’ brand Plugs, model numbers SCSS12 / SCSS13.

Model number information can be located on the white label attached to the base of the slow cooker.

KDJ plugs can be identified by the letters KDJ printed between the two base pins on the plug.
