Google's John Mueller said if you see that your sitelinks in Google Search are going to the wrong country version URL on your site, then try using hreflang. John said on X, "This is kinda what hreflang is for (and even that isn't a guarantee that languages/regions won't mix)."
Daniel_Howard posted an SEO issue where a site was showing the US version of the URL in a search done on Google UK. Also, the spelling of "Jewelry" was in the US version and not in the UK version of "Jewellery."
