Fish without bones can damage children’s health

(Prague December 23, 2015) Within market monitoring, CTIA officers detected a product which poses serious risk of injury especially to children. A luminous pistol-shaped plastic fish with batteries and sounds is charged by button batteries that are accessible without the necessity to use any instrument. These batteries are small parts that can be easily inhaled or swallowed, so they can cause choking or suffocation and damage inner organs. The Czech Trade Inspection Authority prohibited further sale of the toy and distributor subsequently withdrew the product from the market. The product was notified into the system of dangerous products RAPEX, notification reference: INFO/229/15.
