(Prague, September 10, 2015) During ordinary monitoring of the market with toys, officers of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority found out that a product is offered which poses serious risk to children users. A plastic duck on wheels has several colours and looks safe, but opposite is the truth. Its movable parts, i.e. wings and wheels, can be easily separated from the body by torsion or pulling and these small parts can be easily swallowed or inhaled by a child. Therefore sale of this toy was prohibited and distributor subsequently took action and withdrew the toy from the market. After complete documentation had been elaborated, the toy was notified into the system of dangerous toys RAPEX.
The complete press release is available in the attachment.
