    Eezy peezy range at Kmart - RECALLED

    From another thread:
    Originally posted by subaruforestermum View Post
    Just letting people know that the Eezy peezy slide on sale (starting tomorrow) at Kmart for $79 has been recalled, due to the product being unsafe, and poor manufacturing!

    I went to layby one today at the $129 price, so I could get in before it went on sale and it wasnt allowed due to the recall...

    Apparently the swings and other products in the same brand are also or have been recalled.

    I can't seem to get into the magnet recall pages on the mattel site. Can anyone else? Does anybody know where else I can see the recalled products?

    Bloody hell.

    I'm getting paranoid about Ava's Pooh Starlight projector now. She likes to chew his nose and there are chips of paint gone.
    Whose to say it won't be the next thing recalled.

    Stupid bloody companies.
