Product Safety Australia have issed a safety alert in relation to Avalan Industries P/L—Kids' Bean Bags.

The defect is that the child sized bean bags do not have a child-resistant slide fastener on the inner zip of the bean bag.

The hazard is that in contravention of the mandatory safety standard for bean bags, the bag is not fitted with a child-resistant slide fastener and may therefore allow access to the polystyrene beans, which pose a potential choking hazard to young children.

The bean bags were sold nationally via the Avalan Kids website. Consumers should remove the paperclip from the zipper to prevent children accessing the polystyrene beads.
