Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Children’s Watches are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, the backing of the recalled Watches may detach if dropped. If this defect happens, small parts, including the battery itself can be exposed if the back is removed. If young children gain access to the button batteries and ingest them, they may suffer internal burn injuries, which can result in serious illness and even death. In addition, the batteries may pose a choking hazard to young children.

In general, 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 any of the recalled Children’s Watches, please do not use them nor let your child wear or play with the Watches. 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.
