The DGGX16 Tough Play Mighty Dumbbell Tug Rope & DGGX16 Tough Play Toss n Fetch Tug a Rope have been pulled from shelves over fears they may pose a serious choking hazard for dogs.
“In some circumstances the join area where the rope connects are coming unglued leaving the clear plastic over the cap loose. If the defect occurs whilst in use this may be a choking hazard for a dog,” a statement posted on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission reads.
