Name: 'CALL CLIENT' incense sticks
 
Type/number of model: Unknown
 
Batch number/Barcode: 8901810014800

The product poses a chemical risk because the incense sticks release aromatic hydrocarbons such as benzene, toluene, xylene and styrene during and after combustion and the estimated emissions exceed the recommended safe concentration for indoor air. Benzene is carcinogenic and mutagenic. In addition, these aromatic hydrocarbons are toxic when inhaled or ingested and irritants to the eyes and skin. As the product is intended for use in closed environments, the release of benzene and toluene is considered harmful to health.

Batch number/Barcode: 8010014000516
 
Risk: Choking, Damage to hearing, Injuries
 
The spherical projectiles pose a risk of injuries because they can be put into the mouth and may be swallowed by children. As they expand, this could cause fatal occlusion of the respiratory track or intestinal blockage. Also, the suction cup of the projectile easily detaches and could obstruct the airways, if put into the mouth, causing choking. The toy's sound pressure level is too high and could cause damage to hearing. The product does not comply with the requirements of the Toy Safety Directive and the relevant European standard En 71-1.
