Additional information:

Among the 35 recalls the European Union has announced in its second report of August 2017, the following notification was made:

Zhibaole Toys Music Zone Toy Xylophones, sold with a type/number of model designation of 16708 (9388-74) and 16701 (9388-75), a batch/lot number of CN-8138 and barcodes/UPCs of 8413419167080 and 8413419167011.

The type of hazard presented by the recalled Toy Xylophones include choking and ingestion. Specifically, the white pins connecting the sound bars to the base can detach easily, generating small parts. If a child puts the pins in the mouth, it could obstruct the airway. In addition, the pins 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 requirements of the Toy Safety Directive and the relevant European standard EN 71-1.

Due to these hazards, the European Union has ordered the recalled Zhibaole Toys Music Zone Toy Xylophone withdrawn from the European marketplace.
