Children may inhale small flute parts

(Prague, May 30, 2013) Toys belong among the products that are monitored by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority during the whole year. The officers especially focus on seeking risky toys that could damage the health of the users, i.e. children, due to their characteristics or in the consequence of insufficient seller’s information. A plastic flute originating in China is one of the risky products detected in the Czech market. “Selling of this product was banned because both the inner and the outer part of the removable mouth-piece came loose during the pull test, thus there is a risk of choking or inhaling the small parts,” the CTIA Director General Vladimír Velčovský explained.
