Australian parents on alert as Kmart toy recalled for serious choking hazard

Australian parents have been urged to check their children’s toys for a recalled product that has been sold at online and in-store Kmart stores across the country.

The consumer watchdog has issued an urgent recall of the Kmart Anko Teething Llama toy over concerns it poses a choking hazard to young children.

The regulatory watchdog warned that the cap, which seals the entry point into one foot of the toy, may not be secure and could detach from the teether, posing a choking hazard.

“If the cap detaches from the teether, it may pose a choking hazard to young children, which could result in serious injury or death,” the ACCC said.

The potentially dangerous products were sold in Kmart stores nationwide between April 27 and October 21, 2022.

Anyone who has purchased the toy is asked to stop using it immediately and keep it out of the reach of children.

Customers should return the toy to the nearest Kmart store for a full refund.
