Australia FlagAustralia/Canberra: WA Pool Warehouse, a Balcatta, Western Australia establishment, recalls certain batch/lots of Pool Noodle Swimming Assistive products due to suspected failure to comply with marking requirements of Australia’s mandatory standard ‘Trade Practices Act 1974 – Consumer Protection Notice No.2 of 2009 – Consumer Product Safety Standard: Flotation Toys and Aquatic Toys’ because the required safety warning does not appear on the flotation product and consequential risk of drowning if the assistive product is not used as intended, all serious safety hazards.

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Pool Noodle products are subject to this recall:

  • Pool Noodle Swimming Assistive products, sold in bright yellow colour

==> No barcodes, UPCs, APNs or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s design and retail presentation.

According to the ACCC, due to the apparent missing warning labeling, parents and other caregivers may not be aware of important safety information about the use of the product (i.e. only use under adult supervision). There is, therefore, an increased risk of drowning if the product is not used as intended.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Pool Noodles, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 0-0-0, your closest hospital or emergency centre equipped to handle drowning.
