Description: Sweater dress with bolero in two colours, with a knitted lace collar. The bolero has a cord that is knotted at the ends and is decorated with wooden pyrography balls with a large middle hole so the balls can be easily removed.
Country of origin: Unknown
The product poses a risk of strangulation due to the length of the cord, and because this cord is not fixed in any place. In addition, the wooden balls that can be easily removed from the cord could be swallowed causing a risk of choking.
The product does not comply with the relevant European standard EN 14682.
Compulsory measures: Sales ban ordered by the authorities.
Enforcement is a top priority of the EU Consumer Policy Strategy 2007-2013. Both measures leading to RAPEX notifications and measures which come to the attention of the Commission and other Member States as reactionsare indications of enforcement activity in the Member State concerned.
In order to give a better view on the overall level of enforcement, including the follow-up activities of the national market surveillance authorities, the Commission RAPEX team has decided to publish on the RAPEX website also the names of the countries that have found the notified product on their market and have taken appropriate measures (and have submitted a reaction to a RAPEX notification as a consequence).
Information about the reacting countries is available in the RAPEX weekly overviews in the column 'Products were found and measures were taken also in'. The Commission RAPEX team will publish reactions sent (from May2009 onwards) to 2009 RAPEX notifications.
DISCLAIMER: If not specified in the report, the risk and non-compliance refer to a risk for consumer health and safety
