Product Safety Alert – Holiday Gift Daily #39
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.
Wooden Airplane Puzzle
Today we draw your attention to a Wooden Airplane Puzzle as shown on the picture underneath. This product was found in the EU member state of Slovakia. The puzzle is made of 7 different coloured wooden parts in the shape of an airplane. One part is showing a cloud and another part with the inscription Plane. These parts are placed on a wooden plywood in the shape of a square. It is packaged in transparent plastic foil.
There is a serious risk of chocking: small parts may easily detach from the toy. A small child may put it in the mouth and choke on it. The product does not comply with the requirements of the Toy Safety Directive and the relevant European Standard EN 71-1.
This product was withdrawn from the market and we advice consumers that have already purchased this product to cease using it and contact the dealer where it was bought.
