Product Safety Alert – Holiday Gift Daily #50
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.
Boho Tassel Toy & Teething Ring
Today we draw your attention to a tassel toy / teething ring from Boho. The ring is attached to two small tassels with chains of beads. It is sold online by 'Big Love Co'. This teether toy came to the attention of the authorities in Australia.
The product does not comply with the requirements of the Australian mandatory standard 'Consumer Protection Notice No. 14 of 2003 – Consumer Product Safety Standard: Toys for children up to and including 36 months of age'. The beads may loosen and detach from the product. If the beads detach, they may pose a choking or suffocation hazard for young children.
Consumers should immediately stop using the product. Consumers should dispose of or destroy the product and contact Big Love Co to arrange for a full refund. Consumers will be asked to provide a photograph to show that the product has been disposed of or destroyed. If the product has already been disposed of or destroyed, consumers are asked to notify Big Love Co so that the safe disposal of the products can be monitored.
For more information, consumers can contact Big Love Co via email at email@example.com
