Children’s sensory bottle toys recalled over choking fears

Mini Minds are recalling their children’s sensory bottle toys over choking fears.

In a recall notice posted on the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission website yesterday, the company says they are pulling the 125mL and 250mL plastic bottles from sale over fears they may pose a serious choking risk.

“Some bottles may fail the drop test in the mandatory standard for toys for children under 36 months of age,” the recall notice reads.

“If the bottles do break the contents of the bottle or pieces of the lid may present a choking hazard to a child.”

The bottles, containing either water and glitter, expanding water beads or a water and oil combination were sold nationwide between 11 December 201515 April 2016.
