Pylones branded Magic Bunny Mini Light Up Vacuum Cleaners, sold with a model designation of HP01-2018 with a barcode/EAN/UPC of 3661561098256. The product is a novelty vacuum cleaner designed to be placed on the tabletop and clean small areas.

No batch/lot designations, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other codes were listed with this recall.

The type of hazards presented in the recalled Pylones branded Magic Bunny Mini Light Up Vacuum Cleaners include the reported findings that the welds in the Vacuum Cleaners contain an excessive amount of Lead (measured value up to 60%).

Specifically, the recalled Pylones branded Magic Bunny Mini Light Up Vacuum Cleaners pose a risk if handled extensively or if used as a toy for children because Lead poses risks of developmental impairment and reproductive damage as well as being recognized as a likely human carcinogen. In addition, Lead is a risk to the environment if disposed of improperly.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Pylones branded Magic Bunny Mini Light Up Vacuum Cleaners do not comply with the European Commission Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (“RoHS 2 Directive”).

Consequently, a recall of these Vacuum Cleaners and a withdrawal of the product from the European marketplace has been ordered.
