Additional information:

Among the 34 recalls the European Union has announced in its first report of August 2017, the following notification was made:

Air Shoot / Hipo Soft Bullet Gun - Report 31/2017Air Shoot / Hipo Soft Bullet Gun, sold with a type/number of model: #H12078/JL-3817A, a batch/lot number of CN-8138 and a barcode/UPC of 5902447000207

The type of hazards presented by the recalled Toy Guns include choking and ingestion. Specifically, the suction cups associated with these Toy Guns can easily detach from the projectiles. If a child puts the projectile in the mouth, for instance in order to wet it so that it sticks better to a surface, the suction cup may detach and obstruct the airway. In addition, the suction cups could be accidentally swallowed, creating ingestion risks and consequential GI tract laceration, damage and/or blockage, which may require surgical intervention.

The product does not, therefore, comply with the requirements of Europe’s Toy Safety Directive and the relevant European standard EN 71-1.

Due to these hazards, the European Union has ordered the recalled Air Shoot / Hipo Soft Bullet Gun withdrawn from the European marketplace.
