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.

Microbiological

The product poses a chemical risk because the liquid exceeds the limit values for the total aerobic microbial count (TAMC) (aerobic mesophilic bacteria) laid down by the European Pharmacopoeia for the microbiological quality of non-sterile pharmaceutical preparations (5.1.4), for which cutaneous, nasal or oromucosal contact is envisaged; we consider that the same limit (10²) should apply, since there is equivalence between the exposure experienced by children using the soap bubble toy (this actually occurs through cutaneous contact, through indirect inhalation and through frequent accidental introduction into the mouth during use) and the exposure envisaged for the preparations referred to above. The liquid also returns a positive result for gram-negative bacteria, among which Burkholderia cepacia has been identified; this is highly resistant to antibiotics and is capable of causing infections, including serious infections, in vulnerable subjects such as children with cystic fibrosis or immunodeficiciency disorders.

Compulsory measures: Seizure of the products and withdrawal from the market ordered by the authorities.

Choking

The product poses a risk of choking because the novelty soap consists of an imitation heart shape and two square pieces of chocolate and orange pieces that may be confused for a real piece of chocolate and fruit. All of the loose parts fit entirely into the small parts cylinder and therefore present a risk to consumer safety, in particular to children (choking, obstruction of digestive tract).
