Risk description
The product presents a serious choking risk as both the eyes and nose detached under tensile forces of 24N + 0.3N and 67 + 0.7N, which is less than the minimum permissible limit of a force of 90N applied for ten seconds. Both detached components fitted wholly inside the small parts cylinder and therefore poses a potential choking hazard to a child under 36 months. The sample also poses an asphyxiation hazard as the plastic bag used for packaging has an area greater than 100 mm x 100 mm and the bag thickness measured as 0.023 ± 0.002 mm is less than the minimum 0.038 mm specified. The product does not meet the requirements of the Toys (Safety) Regulations 2011.
