In December, an alarming new trend to ‘bling’ baby products such as dummies and bottles was brought to the attention of the BPA which immediately issued a statement on behalf of members to national and trade press.
Products manufactured legitimately according to highest safety standards are reportedly being adorned with glued on gems and beads by third party companies, potentially putting babies and children at risk as decorative additions can easily fall off and cause choking if lodged in a child’s throat.
Trading Standards is aware of these products, which particularly appeal to babies and toddlers because they sparkle and look fun, and are often sold on websites, independent shops and market stalls. Anyone who comes across such products are urged to call Consumer Direct on 0845 040506.
