Product title
Insect killer "Mosquito-Stop Racket"
Product description
The product is in the shape of a tennis racket with an orange/yellow frame. The handle is black. The latter contains a box with 2 batteries type AA of 1.5V and has a red switch and a green control light (LED diode light). The horizontal strings are made from metallic wires. The product is packed in a blister pack.
Risk
The product poses a risk of electric shock because consumers are not appropriately warned against contact with the metallic wires, which are under high voltage, as warnings in the Slovak language to warn consumers are missing. In addition, the material from which the product is made may deform when exposed to heat. The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60335.
