Product title
Iris root teether
Mordedor de raíz de iris
Product description
The product is a natural teether for babies. It is packed in a clear plastic bag with a card label indicating 'Bebés Ecológicos', the use of iris root and a photograph of a baby.
Risk
Although the label states that the teether is not a necklace and the cord has a knot, the latter can easily be undone, so that it would be perfectly possible for it to coil round a baby's neck, therefore posing a risk of strangulation. In addition, the composition of the iris root and the form of use (sucking) mean that it may become contaminated, which would damage the oral mucosa.
Measures taken
Measures ordered by public authorities: Withdrawal of the product from the market
