RECALL NOTICE: Amber teething necklaces

31 May

We have today received a recall notice from Wildsheep regarding their Amber Teething Necklaces.  We recently sold these necklaces on our website.  Following recent investigations by Trading Standards into the safety of all teething necklaces, Wildsheep submitted a necklace for safety tests and here are the results.

BS EN 71-1:2011 Mechanical and Physical Properties

  •   Tension Test – General (Satisfactory)
  • 8.7          Impact Test (Unsatisfactory)

The following is an extract from the “Opinions and Interpretations” section of the test report.

“The product failed to satisfy BS EN71-1:2011 (Safety of toys – part 1:  mechanical and physical properties) when tested in accordance with paragraph 8.7 (Impact Test), in that several beads shattered and detached. The bead fragments fitted wholly inside the small parts cylinder of dimensions specified in paragraph 8.2. These components pose a potential choking/inhalation hazard to a child under 36 months.”

We would like to point out that there have been no incidents of these necklaces causing harm HOWEVER as a precautionary measure all teething necklaces that fail these tests are being recalled as a precautionary measure.  If you have purchased one of these necklaces from us and wish to return it for a full refund you are of course welcome to do so. Please note that we cannot be liable for any necklaces that are lost in the post so you may wish to send via recorded delivery.

We apologise for any inconvenience or distress this may cause. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Thank you
