Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Toy Watches are subject to this recall:

  • The recalled Watches have a Santa themed digital watch face encased in a red sweat band. The Watches contain a single “button” style battery.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, EANs, or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

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

According to the ACCC, there is a risk that the small button battery inside the recalled Watches may be accessible to children. If this defect does occur and young children can gain access to the button batteries and ingest them, they may suffer internal burn injuries, which in turn can result in serious illness and even death. In addition, the batteries may pose a choking hazard to young children.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Toy Watches, please do not let your child play with or near them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> Small “button” batteries pose special ingestion risks to small children. Devices using them in the home or school should be closely examined and monitored for any breakage or other unintended access that could allow these batteries to be swallowed or otherwise ingested.
