These Cat Toys are thought to have been marketed, distributed and sold in all Australian states although it is always possible these cat toy products had wider distribution outside the country. When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

According to the ACCC, Pet Pacific Pty Ltd. has recalled certain batch/lots of Catit 2.0 Senses Fireball Cat Toys from the Australian marketplace due to suspected component detachment. Specifically, the button batteries contained in the recalled Cat Toys may not be adequately secured and the button batteries in the product may be easily accessible.

If 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 batteries may pose a choking hazard to young children.

==> 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.

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