(Prague, January 22, 2016) During inspections of child care products, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority found out that a playpen which poses a serious safety hazard to smallest users is sold in the market. A wooden pin on the upper door side, being a part of the locking mechanism, repeatedly collapsed during laboratory tests. In the consequence, a small part occurred which could fit into the test tube for small parts, so it could endanger child’s health if inhaled or suffocated. The hazard of finger clash or contusion is posed by cutting spaces in the lower part of closed doors as well as in the area of hinges when the doors are opened. Complex documentation concerning the dangerous playpen was transferred to the RAPEX contact point and published in the database under the notification number A12/1674/15.
