Whistling duck with light effects is dangerous to children

(Prague, January 13, 2016) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority warns consumers against a dangerous toy, a whistling duck with light effects which was detected in the Czech market. It poses health hazard especially to small children. Easily separable small parts, i.e. a whistle and a cord loop on the duck’s head, can be swallowed or inhaled and cause choking or suffocation. The elastic cord can be pulled to the length of 70 cm and hence poses risk of strangulation. The Czech Trade Inspection Authority prohibited distribution of this toy and the inspected person subsequently withdrew the product from the market. The product was notified into the system RAPEX as a dangerous toy, file No. INFO 0244/15.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
