According to the ACCC, the battery compartment in the recalled products containing Button Batteries may not be adequately secured allowing possible access to the button battery if the product is dropped on a hard surface.

If this defect occurs, 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 metal fragments are ingested, they could also 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.
