Vicinity Centres — Santa Themed Toy Watches
What are the defects?
There is a risk that the small button battery inside the watch may be accessible to children.
What are the hazards?
If young children gain access to the button batteries and ingest them, they may suffer internal burn injuries, which can result in serious illness and even death. In addition, the batteries may pose a choking hazard to young children.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should immediately cease using the product and return it to centre management at:
Dianella Plaza shopping centre (located at 366 Grand Promenade, Dianella WA 6059); or
Flinders Square shopping centre (30 Wiluna St, Yokine WA 6060); or
