O-Kinee branded Party Balloons, sold with a barcode/EAN of X0014RZCRH and an Amazon ASIN of B07PK7WCNL. This recall alert was submitted by Germany to the EU Safety Gateway.

These O-Kinee branded Party Balloons are marketed, sold and delivered as air- or helium-fillable Balloons suitable for home, non-commercial use. The recalled Balloon sets are sold, marketed and delivered in 100-piece packages and in multiple pastel colours, which are randomly assigned at the product packaging stage. Each of the pastel-coloured Balloons measures approximately ten (10) inches in diameter when filled. According to the company, there are enough Balloons in one package to make an walk-through arch and balloon garland.

No EANs/barcodes, UPCs, item numbers, best-before date codes, 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 O-Kinee branded Party Balloons include the reported finding that the level of Nitrosamines released by the recalled Balloons is too high (measured value up to 1.7 mg/kg).

United Nations | World Health Organization___________________________________________________________

Nitrosamines are substances known to be or reasonably suspected of being Carcinogenic (i.e., Cancer-producing) through inhalation, ingestion or dermal (i.e., skin) exposure. A child can be exposed to Nitrosamines by putting the Balloon in the mouth for inflation and other normal purposes when utilizing the product in a reasonable manner expected with its intended design and supposed use.

These O-Kinee branded Party Balloons, therefore, do not comply with the European Toy Safety Directive and the relevant European standard, EN 71-12.

As a result of these reported defects, a recall of these O-Kinee branded Party Balloons, a withdrawal of the products from the European marketplace and a stop-sale order in the European marketplace has been ordered
