A child’s bath toy is being recalled over fears it could injure children.
Zuru Inc has recalled 7.5 million Baby Shark bath toys around the world, because their hard plastic fins could cause scratches, lacerations and puncture wounds if a child falls on them.
In a statement, the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) said there are 52,092 of the full-size toys in Ireland.
They were sold in Lidl and Smyths Toys.
“The risk associated with the product is that of injuries,” the CCPC said.
“If a child, slips, falls or sits on the hard plastic fin of the bath toy, it could result in scratches, lacerations and puncture wounds.”
The model number of the toy is 252282.
There is a different version of the toy that has been on the market since March that has a silicon top fin and is not affected by the recall.
Anyone who purchased one of the toys is urged to stop using it immediately and to keep it out of the reach of children.
You can register for a recall and refund via the website Bath Shark Recall Register.
