Childrens flashing novelty rings recalled over choking fears

Parents are being warned of a recall involving a popular children’s novelty ring.

The Australian Consumer and Competition commission announced the recall of the Elka Australia tiger and elephant shaped rubber rings on Monday.

In a statement, they said the rings, with a flashing light inside, may pose a potential choking hazard.


“The front of the ring may be separated from the base, exposing the battery pack.

“If the batteries are exposed, this poses a potential choking hazard.”

The rings were sold nationwide at Taronga Zoo, National Zoo, The Big Merino, Australian Museum and Luna Park between 17th May and 16th June 2016.

People who have purchased the rings have been advised to return the toy to the place of purchase, or directly to Elka Australia at PO Box 111, Milperra, NSW 2214 for a full refund.
