Additional information:
The UK Chartered Trading Standards Institute (“CTSI”) reports the following Children’s Toys are subject to this recall:

  • Butterfly Wand Children’s Toys, model number T1079 (TY02), sold between June 2011 and June 2012

Please consult the photograph above for details of the Toy’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the CTSI, the recalled Wand Toy is designed to appeal to a child younger than three (3) years of age so special attention must be paid to the design and durability of parts which may detach during normal play. Under lab testing, two (2) plastic stars were able to be detached: these would present an injury hazard and a significant choking risk if inhaled or swallowed by a child.

In addition, the warning symbol on the label of the Wand Toy’s packaging was smaller in diameter than the minimum 10 mm size required by the applicable UK standard. This creates additional risk for children because their parents or other caregivers may not necessary be aware of the risks associated with a Toy of this nature.

If plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Children’s Toys, please do not use or consume it. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have questions about this recall, please contact DG Enterprises on 07812 816 923.
