Product Safety Australia have recalled Village Roadshow Theme Parks Pty Ltd—LED Light Figurines due to a potential button battery hazard.

The following products have ben recalled:

White polar bear, penguin & dolphin LED light figurines with "Sea World" logo and white star LED light figurine featuring "Warner Bros. Movie World" sold between 12 September 2014 and 21 July 2015.

The defect is that the battery cover may not be adequately secured due to the screws not being long enough, which could allow for access to the button batteries inside or the batteries falling out if the cover became detached.

The hazard is that if young children gain access to the button batteries and ingest them, they may suffer internal burn injuries, which can result in serious illness and even death. In addition, the batteries may pose a choking hazard to young children.

Consumers should either bring the product back to Sea World or Warner. Bros. Movie World to get a refund or safely dispose of the batteries and the figurines and contact Village Roadshow Theme Parks to arrange a full refund of the purchase price.
