A MUM has sent a warning to other parents after her son was left in A&E after using a kids duvet cover from B&M.
The unhappy review was posted on Facebook of the bargain store’s £5 football-themed single duvet set.
The concerned mum wrote on the B&M Bargains and More group: “I bought this duvet cover.
“It is going straight into the bin. It is like a silk material, my son had it on his bed,.as he's been sleeping, he has been turning over, the cover doesn't move with them, it just tangles them up.
“This happened last night and we have ended up in AnE, as he had got so tangled up turned over, fell out and smashed his head!!”
She added that the "amount of blood that came from this gash was unreal."
The description of the duvet set, which is made from 100 per cent polyester, says: “Add some colour and wonder to your little one's bedroom with this fabulous Football Duvet Set.
“Perfect for your child is a big football fan!”
The cover comes in blue, green and red, and has cartoon footballs on it, along with the words “shoot”, “kick” and “tackle.”
A B&M spokeswoman said: “We take the safety of our products very seriously. We have spoken with the customer to investigate and she agreed there is no fault with the product.”
They added that they had been in contact with the woman over the product and she said "there was no fault with the duvet her son just got tangled in it and fell out of bed."
Since the post went up this week, numerous parents have been quick to lend their support to the mum, and say they will avoid the product in future.
A woman commented: “Shame as lovely cover for a football fan,my grandson would love this but safety has to come 1st”, with someone adding: “Hope your little boy is ok.”
Another person wrote: “All duvet covers I've brought from there have done the same I hate buying duvet covers now they all end up in the bin.”
It is like a silk material, my son had it on his bed,.as he's been sleeping, he has been turning over, the cover doesn't move with them, it just tangles them up.
And one person added: “They are usually 100% polyester that's why so slippy. I only buy 50/50 cotton mixed or 100% cotton.”
However, some people defended B&M’s bedding, with one person writing: “I disagree I've had some beautiful ones and beautiful quality. If you buy the cheap ones that's your fault.”
And one continued: “I like value for money bedding.”
