Product Safety Australia have recalled the eBay Trader "Aussie Wide Best Buys"óWater Resistant Bean Bag Cover due to a potential choking hazard.

The eBay Trader "Aussie Wide Best Buys"—Water Resistant Bean Bag Cover was sold nationally via Ebay trader Aussie Wide Best Buys and may be identified via a red colour and the tag 'Epic' sewn into the seam. There are no identifying numbers or codes; however, the product does have a black tag with 'EPIC' sewn into the seam. 

The defect is that the bean bag does not have a child-resistant slide fastener, or the required safety warning labels.

The hazard is that in contravention of the mandatory safety standard for bean bags, the bag does not have the required safety warning labels, and 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.

Consumers should cease using the product. Contact Aussie Wide Best Buys vie email: with a photo of the 'Epic' tag to and to arrange for a replacement cover.
