The specific lot number of the affected tests is on and inside the packaging.

Dr Duncan McPherson, clinical director of medical devices at the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, said: “Patient safety is our highest priority.

“We strongly encourage anyone to report any issues with this product, or more generally with any medical device, to our Yellow Card Scheme.

“If you have any questions about using digital pregnancy tests, please speak to your healthcare professional.”
