Whistle with a ball and candies can smother children

(Prague, August 30, 2012) It is very easy to buy this whistle with a colourful ball and candies to a begging child. However, the results of safety assessment of this product alert: the product is intended to be put into mouth and such toys or their parts must be manufactured or secured in the way that the risk of their suffocation or breathing in by a child is minimal the same as the risk of various other injuries. In this case it was found that when the product is used in a common and predictable way there is a high probability that a child gets injured because of the easy to separate parts which the whistle is made from. This is why the Czech Trade Inspection Authority banned selling of this toy and the distributor withdrew the product from the market.
