Bristles should not fall out from toothbrush

(Prague, November 24, 2015) A consumer turned to an inspectorate of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority after not having been satisfied with the quality of the toothbrush Profesional Ultra Soft. The word “Profesional” had no real meaning in the case of this product. Bristles that spontaneously release during tooth brushing can cause very unpleasant problems to a user of the toothbrush. Samples collected at a seller’s premises and subsequent laboratory assessment proved that the product fails applicable safety requirements. “We prohibited further sale of the product and the seller subsequently reported having withdrawn the toothbrush from the market. Further investigations will be carried out concerning manufacturer or importer due to suspicion of violation of the obligation to place on the market only safe products,” said Jan Štěpánek, the Director of the CTIA Inspectorate based in Prague.
