Holiday-Presents Daily Product Safety Update -Edition number 9
Today: Noxus – Magnetic Ballpoint Pen and Magnet Set
Traditionally, the end of the year is a time of conviviality and togetherness. Giving presents is an undeniable part of this. But what should you pay attention to when it comes to the safety of these presents? There are still products available that are (partly) unsafe. Fortunately, this is just a fragment of the total offer.
We are here to keep you up to date on the latest developments in product safety. On the one hand, we pay attention to products that are being withdrawn from the market because of included hazardous parts. On the other hand, we provide information on details you should look out for when purchasing products that are still available.
Every day the latest news, alerts and mentionable facts.
Keep yourself informed with our Holiday-Presents Daily to make sure that the present you give is a present that's safe. Once every weekday we will provide a newsletter including the latest news on product safety and recalls, important alerts and mentionable facts that relate to the safety of products. Millions of products have been recalled this year. Here's a video from the US Consumer Reports on how to protect yourself and your family. Hopefully our newsletter will add to your and your children's safety.
Noxus – Magnetic Ballpoint Pen and Magnet Set
Here we go again; we cannot pay enough attention to the extremely hazardous magnetic toys. They come in various shapes and sizes, many of them can cause severe health damage or even lead to death. These toys are not for young children!
This Magnetic Ballpoint Pen and Magnet Set from Noxus is just another example. This is a set that includes a magnetic ball pen and selection of magnets of different shapes and sizes that can be used to create shapes and figures. The product is supplied in a tin.
In their risk-description the OPSS say:
This product poses a high risk of choking because after the soaking test, when tested according to the tension test, the camera button detached at a force of 60N and fits entirely within the small parts cylinder. Additionally, the strap intended to be worn fully around the neck, forming a fixed loop, has no breakaway feature. This toy does not fully comply with the requirements of the relevant standard and does not meet the requirements of the Toys (Safety) Regulations 2011.
The product has been recalled from end users and the product has been recalled from end users by e.g. Amazon. We from Holiday-Presents Daily recommend owners to stop using this product immediately. Contact the distributor you purchased from to request redress.
This is just an example of product safety information about toys and their hazards that you need to be aware of. With our Holiday-Presents Daily we will continue to follow the news on Product Safety and we will continue to keep you informed.
