Woolworths Issues Product Recall Over Child Safety Fears

Warning for parents.

Tags: woolworths

Woolworths is recalling a line of Halloween toys over fears they could harm young children.

The Halloween Ghost and Pumpkin LED Spinning Wands were sold in Woolworths and Safeway supermarkets nationally between 28 September and 18 October 2016. 

The product may crack open when dropped, which would expose the button cell batteries. Ingestion of these button cell batteries by young children can cause internal burns, which has the potential to lead to serious injuries or death.   

Anyone who has purched one of these toys is advised to cease using it, and return it to any Woolworths or Safeway supermarket for a refund.

For more information call Woolworths' customer service toll-free number on 1800 103 515.
