Safety checks by Havering Council on a tub of the cream has shown that it contains hydroquinone, which can cause skin and liver problems.

Customers are advised to return the cream to the shop to get a full refund.

The problems came to light following a joint project with councils from across north east London. Havering cabinet member for public protection, Cllr Lesley Kelly, said: “There will be no quibble and the shop can give you advice on other safer products that may be available.”
