Home Creation branded Ice Cooling Cubes, sold as “Kostki lodu w ksztalcie owocow” with an unknown model number and a partial barcode/EAN of 28029922.

These Home Creation branded Ice Cooling Cube products are reusable food-grade plastic objects used to cool liquids for drinks. They are formed into the shapes of various sweet foodstuffs such as bananas, grapes, watermelon and strawberries and brightly coloured to resemble candy or fruit.

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

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Home Creation branded Ice Cooling Cubes include the reported finding that due to their colour, size and shape, the product may be mistaken for foodstuffs, specifically candy.

If children mistake the Home Creation branded Ice Cooling Cubes for candy or other confectionery products, they can put the small objects into the mouth with consequential risks of choking, oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration damage and bowel obstruction, all serious health and safety hazards requiring immediate medical and/or surgical intervention.

As a direct consequence of this reported defect and their associated risks, these Home Creation branded Ice Cooling Cubes do not comply with Europe’s Food imitating Products Directive.

Consequently, a recall of these recalled Home Creation branded Ice Cooling Cube products and a withdrawal of the products from the European marketplace has been ordered.
