Risk posed by children’s saxophone mouthpiece

(Prague, August 16, 2013) When monitoring the market with toys, inspectors of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority detected a set of musical instruments AGATKA that included one product which failed requirements on safety of toys. “Within the above mentioned set, risk is posed by mouthpiece of a plastic saxophone. The mouthpiece can be loosely slipped on the top of the saxophone and easily removed by a small child. It can all fit in the test tube for small parts, so there is a real risk that a child can swallow, inspire or suffocate it,” said Vladimír Velčovský, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority. The product was notified into the system of dangerous products RAPEX.
