Art, 732312-Baby Gym Jetty Grey, and art 323844 -Baby Gym - Warm grey
Recall for security reasons due to:
As the cords on which the activity toys are suspended can come apart, whereby the wooden parts can fall off the activity center causing small parts / balls. Small parts / balls present a serious choking hazard for small children. The product has been on the market since April 2018 and sold through Sebra’s retailers – shops and online stores, mainly in Europe.
We ask you to immediately dispose of the product in an environmentally friendly way and we have of course refunded you for this product.
Background to the voluntary recall
At Sebra, product quality and safety are of outmost importance, which is why we have implemented a voluntary recall.
In November, Sebra received an enquiry from an attentive parent who noticed that the cords on which the activity toys were suspended had started to come apart, causing some wooden parts to fall off the activity centre. In this case, the Baby Gym had been used with one child without any issue, but it had then been passed on to the next child in the family, which is when the parent became aware of the problem. Even though the Baby Gym has passed tensile tests and is com- pliant with applicable safety standards (Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC) for toys for children under 3 years of age, Sebra decided to launch an investigation based on the above incident.
It turns out that the cord we chose for the product, a strong material also used for mountaineering equipment, needs to be replaced about every 3 years to maintain its durability and strength. Exposure to sunlight may shorten its shelf life. A Baby Gym should therefore not suffer from this problem when new, but after several years – or in the event of inappropriate exposure to sunlight – it could present a safety issue.
