Watch out for small pieces in hanging doll

(Prague, October 2, 2013) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority still finds that products that pose risk to consumers, especially children, are offered in the Czech market. These products mostly are of unknown origin. And in this particular case we speak about a hanging doll. “Small parts can be easily separated from the mentioned toy and can be swallowed or inhaled by a child who can block airways or hurt internal organs. Besides plastic shoes, such danger is posed by a plastic brooch on the doll’s body and a metal ring on which the doll can be hung. Sale of the doll was banned and distributor withdrew the product from the market,” said Vladimír Velčovský, the Director General of the CTIA.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
