Product Safety Alert – Holiday Gift Daily #42
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.
Nice & Nifty Light Up Bunny Sign
Today we draw your attention to an easter decoration. It is a bit early for Easter gifts, but this product was found in Australia in October 2021 and we think we do need to warn you about the hazards. As said it is an Easter decoration product in the shape of an Easter Bunny as shown in the photo below. The product contains three button batteries.
The button battery compartment of the product may not be adequately secured and the button battery in the product may be easily accessible. If young children gain access to the button batteries and ingest them, they may suffer internal burn injuries, which can result in serious illness and even death. In addition, the batteries may pose a choking hazard to young children. The product's packaging does not contain safety warnings or markings regarding button batteries.
Any consumer who has purchased the products from Australia Post or received the products as a gift should return the product to an Australia Post outlet for a full refund.
For more information, consumers can contact Australia Post on 13 13 18 (Monday to Friday, 8am–6pm AEST).
