Product Safety Alert – Holiday Gift Daily #55
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.
Today we draw your attention to Children's Blouse from Fox. This piece of clothing was found in Cyprus. It is a long sleeve blouse, designed for 3-6 months old girls bearing elastic drawstring with toggle fixed on it. On the front it contains the text 'you're awesome'.
The blouse has long cords with free ends in the waist area that can become trapped during children's normal activities, resulting in injuries. The product does not comply with the requirements of the General Product Safety Directive and with the relevant European standard EN 14682.
Consumers should immediately stop wearing the recalled blouse and return it to the place where it was purchased.
Every day the latest news, alerts and mentionable facts.
