Popular inflatable pool Flamingo and Pegasus recalled

Two inflatable pool toys, including an inflatable Flamingo and Pegasus, have been recalled from Aldi.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission issued the recall on Tuesday, saying the Crane Sports jumbo novelty inflatables shaped like a flying horse (Pegasus) and flamingo, have been pulled from sale.

They said the product labeling on the inflatables was insufficient and missing the following warning: WARNING. AQUATIC TOY. USE ONLY UNDER SUPERVISION.

“If children are not supervised while using the products, there is an increased risk of drowning,” the recall notice reads.

The inflatables were sold at Aldi stores in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.

People have been told to immediately stop using the products and to return them to their nearest ALDI Store for a full refund.

Nanny state stuff. The printed warning is purely so the company avoids being sued when a foolish adult doesn’t supervise appropriately. How about we tattoo kids with “Increased likelihood of drowning without competent life saver supervision”.
