Avalan Industries P/L—Kids' Bean Bags

Identifying features


What are the defects?

The inner zip on the bean bag does not have a child-resistant slide fastener.

What are the hazards?

In contravention of the mandatory safety standard for bean bags, the bag is not fitted with a child-resistant slide fastener and may therefore allow access to the polystyrene beans, which pose a potential choking hazard to young children.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should remove the paperclip from the zipper to prevent children accessing the polystyrene beads.
