Rapex Weekly Report: report 5, 2010
RAPEX is the EU rapid alert system for all dangerous consumer products, with the exception of food, pharmaceutical and medical devices. It allows for the rapid exchange of information between Member States and the Commission of measures taken to prevent or restrict the marketing or use of products posing a serious risk to the health and safety of consumers. Both measures ordered by national authorities and measures taken voluntarily by producers and distributors are covered by RAPEX.
The report includes detailed information on the products concerned, the risks, the notifying Member State, and the measures adopted in response. Pictures are included where available.
