A brand of wireless earbuds has been recalled over "serious" safety fears.

The Office for Product Safety and Standards issued a recall notice for KitSound's KSFUNK 25 earbuds, from Dorset-based electronics distributor Kondor Ltd.

The Chinese-made product has been found to be prone to overheating of the charging case if it is connected to a power source which inputs more than five volts, according to a notice on the Trading Standards website.

There is also a burn risk if the charging case overheats and is touched.

The earbuds and charging case do not meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations of 2016.
