The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Spongebob Square Pants Yo-Yo Balls are subject to this recall:

  • Stretchable Spongebob Square Pants Yo-Yo Ball

According to the ACCC, these types of products are banned under Consumer Protection Notice 20 of 2011 because the cord provides a yo-yo effect and can stretch to over the safe limit of 500 mm in length. The cord could wind around a child’s neck, especially if swung around the head. The highly elastic and ‘sticky’ nature of the cord can constrict breathing if wound tightly around a child’s neck and cause choking.
