Important Safety Notice - Product Recall - The Consortium Branded Colouring Pens

It has come to our attention that a number of the Colouring Pens we supply have not been compliant with the required safety standard we would expect. The required standard is BS7272-1:2008. This standard governs the specifications for Safety Caps for Writing and Marking Instruments which dictates the amount of airflow that passes through the cap.
