      Love N Care Baby Walkers
      Date: 23/05/2007
      Supplier Name: Love N Care
      Product Info: The baby walkers have been sold for a number of years Australia wide at various retailers.
      Defect Details: It has been found that items on the toy tray such as the traffic light stickers and the steering wheel can easily detach resulting in a choking inhalation hazard to young children. When the tray is removed from the walker, the battery compartment lid may also release too easily giving a child access to the batteries.
      Consumer action: Stop using the baby walker immediately. Remove the tray from the walker and store it away from children. Call Love N Care on 02 9774 4655 to register your details to receive a replacement tray.

        Hills Play Gyms and Slides
        Date: 11/05/2007
        Supplier Name: Hills Industries Limited
        Product Info: The product recall applies only to Hills Play gyms and slides sold between 1 December 2005 and 10 May 2007. The products have distinctive dark blue steel frames, and bright green plastic components. The bright green plastic components are embossed with a Hills logo and "Replace By" date markings between Oct 2009 and Dec 2010. The products were made available for sale through various retailers.
        Defect Details: The plastic components of the affected products do not have adequate UV stabilisation and are suffering premature fading and minor surface cracking. The plastic components will therefore not have the lifespan prior to replacement that they otherwise should have. Deterioration due to UV exposure is likely to result in a significant number of cracking failures of the plastic components over the next 12 months.
        Consumer action: Consumers are advised to cease using the affected products and contact Hills Industries Limited on 1300 734 323 or via the website www.hills.com.au to organise for a replacement set of plastic components to be sent to them at Hills' expense.

            Thomas The Tank Engines - Wooden set!

            A massive international recall could see parents snatching away their children's favourite toys.
            A range of Thomas the Tank Engine toys has been coloured with lead-based paint which could be toxic if children chewed on them.

            New South Wales Fair Trading Minister, Linda Burney, said chewing on the wooded pieces could be hazardous.

            "We've discovered that there is a contamination with the paint, it actually has lead in it," she told 7News.

            "Extreme forms of lead poisoning can cause very serious behavioural and learning difficulties in young children."

            The toy's manufacturer blew the whistle on itself even though there have been no reports of illness anywhere in the world.

            Its Australian importer said the voluntary recall affects only one in 200 Thomas toys sold here.

            There are about 91,000 in Australian homes.

            The recall only applies to a limited range of painted wooden toys made in China.

            The importers of the plastic and metal Thomas the Tank Engine range said those toys are still perfectly safe.

            Retailers have been asked to clear them from shelves while purchasers will be offered a bonus engine.
