Asda has apologised for the problem with the DVD players
Supermarket Asda has recalled 60,000 DVD players amid fears of a dangerous design fault.
The retailer estimates that a third of the players have a hole in the outer casing, which could put them at risk of electrocution.
The affected product costs £17.97 and has a model number DVD1072UK.
Asda could not say how many had been sold to customers, but urged anyone with the product to stop using it and return it to their nearest store.
A spokesman apologised for the problem, and said that a refund would be given if returned, even without the box or a receipt.
He stressed that nobody had been hurt but the product was being recalled as a precaution.
