The Competitions and Consumer Protection Commission issued the safety notice this week after identifying an issue with the airplane toy sold on the eBay platform.

“If a child were to play with the toy the batteries may fall out and the child may choke on them if ingested.”

Given the online availability of this product on the eBay platform, it may have been sold to customers in the Republic of Ireland.

What to do:

If you purchased one of these products, you should discontinue use immediately and keep it out of the reach of children.

If you want to contact the eBay seller to see if there are any remedies available to you, you can do this via your user account on the eBay platform.
