Safety Recall - Tiger Eye Protector

We are no longer able to distribute or use the following Eye Protection. These have been recalled. Please see detail from the Department of Health & Social Care.

Tiger Eye Protector Product – Removal from the Supply Chain in respect of Covid-19 use

BSI at the request of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have carried out a test on Tiger Eye protective goggles and frames that originated from the Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Programme (PIPP) Stock purchased in 2009.

The test has shown the product does not meet the current requirement for splash protection required in BSN 166 (including certain testing requirements documented in BSN 168). As a result, this product should not be used in a Covid-19 setting, and we are removing it from the supply chain.”
