Choking

The product poses a risk of choking because these imitation cherries may be mistaken for real fruit. Once the stem is detached, the imitation cherries fit entirely into the small parts cylinder.

Chemical

The products pose a chemical risk because they contain hexavalent chromium, in concentrations varying from 0.6 to 5 mg/kg. Oeko Tex Standard 100 states that, to ensure optimum quality, total chromium content should be less than 1 mg/kg for children’s clothing and less than 2 mg/kg for all other clothing, regardless of whether it is in contact with the skin. According to the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR; 2007), chromium VI should actually be below the detection limit due to the substance’s cutaneous sensitisation properties, i.e. its ability to cause allergic reactions such as contact dermatitis. Taking into account that the target population is children who have a tendency to suck on their clothing and that the chromium VI content is above established limit values, we consider that exposure may occur not only via the cutaneous route, but also by the oral and inhalatory route and that the products therefore pose a chemical risk.

Compulsory measures: Seizure of the products ordered by the authorities.

Country of origin: Switzerland


Click on the picture to enlarge

Chemical

The product poses a chemical risk because, in view of the particularly attractive appearance of the packaging, the probability of inappropriate exposure to this product (primarily ingestion) is increased. The container, which makes the product appear to be a toy or doll and gives it a fun appearance, conveys a message that the risk associated with the product is minimal and draws attention away from the content of the product and the general precautions for its use.

The detergent contains dangerous substances, in particular Sodium Laureth sulfate and Cocamidopropyl betaine, which in the concentration present in the product are irritant to eyes. In addition, it contains limonene, substance which can cause allergic reactions and which implies obligation of warning on the label.

Compulsory measures: Sales ban and withdrawal from the market ordered by the authorities.

Electric shock

The power supply poses a risk of electric shock because the connection to the live and neutral pins of the plug is made purely by solder.

There is excess wire on the low voltage side of the transformer; if one of these wires were to become loose they could touch the input side of the board. In addition, the transformer does not provide sufficient insulation between the primary and secondary circuits. The plug face and pin sizes are considered to be too small.

The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) and with the relevant European standard EN 60950.

Voluntary measures: Voluntary withdrawal from the market and recall from consumers.
