Corgi cushion 

Alert number
2103-0196

Product type
Cushion

Product identifiers
ASIN: B07VDY4X6B

Product description
Three-dimensional large corgi cushion

Country of origin
China

Counterfeit
Unknown

Risk level
High

Risk type
Choking and suffocation

Risk description
This product poses a serious risk of choking as when subjected to tension tests, both the zip puller and rigid polymer nose detached. Both parts fit wholly within the small parts cylinder indicating they pose a choking hazard to a young child. The product's inner seams did not withstand a 70-newton seam strength test and gave access to the filling material. The supplied polymer bag also poses a suffocation hazard as it was sufficiently large to be able to cover a child's mouth and nose simultaneously. It does not bear any warnings that this has been calculated to pose a risk. The product failed flammability testing and therefore also poses a fire risk. There was also no permanent labelling or wording as required by Schedule 7 to the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988.

The product does not meet the requirements of the General Product Safety Regulations 2005 and the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988.
