A recall has been issued for an infant teething toy over fears it could lead to severe injury or even death.

Parents have been told to “completely destroy” the silicone teething toy.

The Xinda Pty Ltd’s “necklace cross chewy teether toy pencil chew kids topper sensory biting silicone”, sold on eBay, has been recalled by Product Safety Australia because it does not meet basic safety requirements.

“The product does not meet the requirements of the mandatory standard … (for) toys for children up to and including 36 months of age,” PSA said in a statement.

“The product may pose a choking or suffocation hazard for young children, which can lead to severe injury or death.”

What should consumers do?

Consumers should dispose of the product and contact Xinda Pty Ltd to arrange for a full refund.
To obtain a refund consumers will be requested to provide Xinda Pty Ltd with a photograph or video to show that the product has been completely destroyed.
