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

  • Rommer Silicone Spoons, sold as safer-use spoons for use with babies and small children and available in multiple muted colours

==> No barcodes, APNs, EANs, UPCs, item numbers, 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.

These Rommer Silicone Spoon products were known to be marketed, distributed and sold in the Australian regions/states of New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia although it is always possible these Spoons had wider distribution within the country. When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

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

According to the ACCC, some of these Silicone Spoons were manufactured incorrectly. A stainless steel inner rod in the Spoon’s handle was placed incorrectly and resulted in the Spoon having a weak point at the neck (i.e., the area between the handle and the bowl).

As a result of this defect, some Spoons may tear at the neck/head or may break if excessive force or abnormal bending occurs. If the head tears or completely snaps off, it can pose a choking hazard for young children, leading to severe injury or death. Additionally, some Spoons may peel open, revealing the inner tainless steel rod that could cause injury or become a choking hazard.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Rommer Silicone Spoons, please do not use them to feed your child or allow your child to play with or near the recalled Spoons. Instead, kindly return the product to the store or online outlet 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 choking, oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration damage and bowel obstruction.
