Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Toy Dolls are pictured on the Web site above.
According to the ACCC, the recalled Soft Toy Dolls do not have a secured battery compartment.

In addition, the batteries may pose a choking hazard to young children.
