Reasons the product is recalled

The product has an elastic cord capable of extending at least 600mm in length. These types of products are banned under Consumer Protection Notice 20 of 2011 - Permanent ban on yo-yo water balls and similar products.

The hazards to consumers

The cord can stretch and may wind around a child’s neck, especially if swung around the head, and pose a risk of strangulation. The highly elastic and ‘sticky’ nature of the cord can constrict breathing if wound tightly.

What consumers should do

Consumers should cease using the product immediately and return the product to their nearest Best & Less store for a full refund.
