The product poses a serious risk of injuries because during the assembly process by the supplier of the mechanical steering (Delphi) it could be that a circlip (Seeger retaining ring) is not correctly fitted in all cases, which means that a perfect fit of this circlip in the groove provided is not always guaranteed. In the worst case this could result in migration of the ball bearing including the steering shaft during steering. This would mean loss of the connection between the steering pinion and the steering rack. The front wheels are then no longer steerable.

Health risk / other

The product poses a serious health risk because the bottle-top is not child-proof and the bottle can be opened easily by children.

Opening the bottle releases a fruity fragrance which children are likely to find pleasant. It is foreseeable that children, especially infants, will be attracted by the smell and colour of the sauna fragrance and will drink it. The bottle's relatively wide opening (approximately 5 mm) means that at the very first attempt to drink the product a few millilitres of the harmful preparation may enter the child's mouth and be swallowed. Swallowing a very small amount of such low-viscosity liquids may cause severe chemical pneumonia in infants.

Voluntary measures: Voluntary withdrawal from the market and recall from consumers by the manufacturer
