Yo-Yo Waterball Toy Recall [Australia]

Australia/Canberra: Design by Stitches recalls some Yo-Yo Waterball Toys due to choking hazard. ACCC: http://ht.ly/hUjJB

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1045828

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the recalled Waterballs consist of a soft rubber ball filled with liquid with a strap that extends and retracts just like a yo-yo. The cord can reportedly stretch to over one metre/meter in length and is capable of winding or being wound around a child’s neck, especially if the toy is swung around the head, posing a choking hazard. The ACCC says the highly elastic and ‘sticky’ nature of the cord can constrict breathing if wound tightly.

ACCC PRA number: 2013/13478
