The lighters on the pictures below pose the risk of burns, in particular to young children, because they are attractive due to their shape and colours or because they produce sounds or lights or have other entertainment functions (e.g. when lifting the lid of the lighter or activating it). In these cases, the main measure taken by the national authorities (and sometimes on a voluntary basis by the producer or distributor) is the withdrawal of the lighters from the market.
