Holiday-Presents Daily; Your Product Safety Update -Edition number 2
Today: Kids Paw Patrol Skye Costume
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 On the one hand, we pay attention to products that are being withdrawn from the market because of included hazardous parts.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 week the latest news, alerts and mentionable facts.
Keep yourself informed 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.

“Consumers should immediately take the recalled Kids Paw Patrol Skye Costume away from children and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund,” Health Canada said.
“Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has determined that the recalled Kids Paw Patrol Skye Costume does not meet the flammability requirements under the Toys Regulations,” Health Canada said in its recall warning. “If exposed to ignition sources such as stove elements, candles, matches or lighters, the Kids Paw Patrol Skye Costume can catch fire, posing a risk to children.”
This is just an example of a toy and its 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.
