The scales feature the faces of well-known stars and their weight details in place of numbers, but Cole is furious her image is used to represent the lighter end, at 112lbs, while actress Melissa McCarthy is placed at the heavier end, at 252lbs.
Now the former Girls Aloud star has spoken out to voice her opposition to the product, insisting she is angry her fame is being used to encourage fans to shed the pounds.
She posted a picture of a news article on Twitter.com, declaring she was "shocked" by the product, before writing: "Pls (please) do not include me on your scale. Girls should be worried about the number on their exam page not a weight scale ffs [for f**ks sake]."
Other celebrities featured on the weighing device include British singers Adele and Ellie Goulding, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and rapper/actress Queen Latifah.
