Rubber horse contains phthalates and a dangerous small part

(Prague, November 6, 2015) When monitoring the market with toys, CTIA inspectors detected a product which poses risk of health damage to smallest consumers. The material from which the inflatable jumping horse is made of contains in weight almost 15% of ester of diisobutyl-phthalate, a substance identified as carcinogenic, mutagenic and toxic for reproduction. Long-term use of the toy can negatively influence healthy development of children. Another risk is posed by an easily releasable plastic pin of the inflation valve – inhalation or swallowing cannot be excluded when the pin is put into child’s mouth. Distribution of the product was prohibited and withdrawal from distribution was ordered. The information was published in the pan-European database RAPEX, file No. INFO 0200/15.
