Risk
The products pose a risk of choking because their form, packaging, size and appearance are such that it is likely that children will confuse them with a foodstuff and consequently either place them in the mouth, suck or ingest them. With the effects of the saliva, the product expands and could entail the risk of asphyxia or obstruction of the digestive tract. The products do not comply with Directive 87/357/EEC on products which, appearing to be other than they are, endanger the health or safety of consumers.
