Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Children’s Toy products are subject to this recall:

  • Flashing Eyeball Silicone Ring Toys, consisting of light-up novelty toys marketed and sold for children aged three (3) years and older and delivered with a small “button” battery with a Red Dot product number of 241022

==> No barcodes, APNs, EANs, UPCs, NDCs, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the toy’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the ACCC, the silicone seal of the Toy may be or become damaged and/or tear, allowing the internal button batteries to be easily accessible and/or released. If this defect occurs and 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 small batteries may pose choking, ingestion and internal laceration hazard to young children. Insertion of button batteries into a body orifice such as an ear or nose can also lead to significant injuries.

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 Flashing Eyeball Ring Children’s Toys, please do not use them nor let your child play with or near 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 properly treat burns, choking, oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration damage and/or bowel obstruction.

==> Small “button” batteries pose special ingestion risks to small children. Devices using them in the home or school should be closely examined and monitored periodically for any breakage or other unintended access that could allow these batteries to be swallowed or otherwise ingested.
