The physical failure of the trainer from impact or penetration can lead to potentially serious injuries to the foot or toe.
The Office for Product Safety and Standards has issued a notice for the recall of a fidget toy advent calendar. One of the fidget toys (the peanut shell) contains an excess concentration of phthalates which poses a serious chemical risk.
A young child playing with the toy is exposed to the phthalates, which are potentially harmful. The product does not meet the requirements of the REACH Enforcement Regulations 2008.
