Risk level

Risk type
Choking, asphyxiation and chemical

Risk description
The product presents a high risk of choking as the battery compartment is not securely fixed to restrict the access to button batteries. The battery box had a removable lid with a hole intended for a screw which would secure the lid, but no screw was present. Once removed, the battery fitted wholly inside the small parts cylinder and therefore poses a potential choking hazard to a young child. The batteries also present a chemical risk as, if swallowed, can result in serious internal chemical burns and damage to the gastrointestinal tract. The product 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 which is less than the minimum 0.038 mm specified. The product does not meet the requirements of the Toys (Safety) Regulations 2011.
