Product Safety Alert – Holiday Gift Daily #23
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 many unsafe products on offer. You do not want your loved-ones to be hurt.
We are here to keep you up to date on the latest developments in product safety. We monitor closely products that are being withdrawn from the market because of included hazardous parts.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.
Alfie Kids’ Chair
Today we draw your attention to a children's chair under the name Alfie Kids’ Chair. It is a wooden flat-packed chair for children with Keycode 63662375.
The three screws used to attach the legs to the base of the chair may be too short, and if a child rocks on it, leans on it at an angle, or climbs on it, the chair may break. If the chair breaks while in use, this could cause an injury. This item was found in Australia.
Consumers should immediately stop using the product and return it to a Target Australia store for a full refund or contact TargetRecalls@target.com.au for options for receiving a refund. A receipt is not required to obtain a refund. For further information, phone the Target Customer Support Centre on 1300 753 567 (Australian number) or visit Target Help Centre or the Target Product Safety Recall page.
