According to the ACCC, this recall was initiated due to the reported failure to comply with the requirements of Australia’s mandatory standard ‘Consumer Protection Notice No.16 of 2010 – Consumer Product Safety Standard: Children’s Projectile Toys’. Specifically, the warning for parents and other caregivers should state, “WARNING: Do not aim at eyes or face’. In the recalled Toys, this mandatory warning has been printed in Spanish and Portuguese rather than in English.

Without a warning in English, parents and/or other caregivers may not be aware of the dangers involved in pointing the projectile toy at the face and activating the device. Facial injury or eye damage may occur, especially at close range to the Toy.

Consequently, if you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Nerf branded Micro Shot Blaster Toys, please do not use them not let your child play with or near them. Instead, kindly contact Hasbro Australia to receive an English language safety instruction that reads, “WARNING: Do not aim at eyes or face”. Parents can also choose to 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| laceration, bone fracture, eye injury and/or concussion.
