Safety Notice: ZeniPower Hearing Aid Batteries

The following notice has been issued by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency:

Safety Notice: ZeniPower mercury-free hearing aid batteries

Battery packaging

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is asking people who have bought ZeniPower mercury-free hearing aid batteries to check the best before date on the packs.

Due to a manufacturing fault, there is a low risk of the batteries exploding during use or if depleted.

This is a precautionary measure as no adverse incidents that resulted in an injury have been reported to MHRA through our safety monitoring system, the Yellow Card Scheme.

The affected batteries have best before dates of 08.2018 and 09.2018. All other batches ZeniPower mercury-free hearing aid batteries are not affected. If in doubt, do not use the batteries.

Pharmacists or retailers which have affected stock on their shelves should remove them immediately and return any remaining stock to their original supplier.
