WARNING - Choking Hazard from 'Bling' Dummies

Parents are being urged by Thurrock Trading Standards not to give potentially dangerous 'bling' dummies to young children. The 'bling' dummies, so called because they are decorated with a variety of beads and gems, have become increasingly popular, especially as a gift or for a special occasion. Trading Standards officers in another part of the country alerted colleagues to the potential safety risk of the dummies after they failed safety tests. The hand-glued beads and gems have been found to be easily detached, posing a huge danger as they could easily choke a baby or small child. Investigations are continuing into the source of these dummies and wherever they find the dummies they will removed from sale. Anyone with a 'bling' dummy or sees them being sold should contact Consumer Direct on 0845 4040506
