Urgent product recall: Handmade Baby teethers
"Consumers should immediately cease using the teethers"
Editor / January 19 2020
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has issued an urgent product recall on two baby teethers.
The recall is due to the size of the teethers. "The teethers are smaller than the permitted dimensions specified in the mandatory standard 'Consumer Protection Notice No. 14 of 2003 — Consumer Product Safety Standard: Toys for children up to and including 36 months of age'.", said the ACCC.
