Shoppers are urged to check to their Christmas gifts as supermarket giant ALDI reminds their customers of and “active product recall” from a play item found in the famous middle aisle.
Over a year ago, ALDI announced the product recall due to serious safety concerns, however very few shoppers returned the dangerous items, a move which potentially puts thousands of children at risk as the toys remain in circulation.
Jack ‘N’ Jill Wooden Block Sets sold at ALDI have been recalled.
Amid fears that fears kids could be at risk of choking over the Christmas break after “low numbers” of the product were brought back for a refund, the supermarket giant has re-issued the recall announcement urging parents not to let their children use the dangerous toys.
Jack ‘N’ Jill Wooden Block Sets sold at ALDI from June 10 to September 9 in 2020 were found to be a choking hazard by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
At the time of the initial recall, the watchdog ruled that “consumers should immediately stop using the products”, but it appears that many may still be.
“If the small magnets detach from the blocks, they pose a risk of choking, suffocation or death for young children,” reads the warning.
Despite 14 months passing, very few shoppers followed the instructions to return the products for a full refund.
Concerned that the products may still be in the hands of small children, ALDi issued e reminder on their Facebook page.
“ALDI takes product safety seriously and due to the low number of returns, we wish to remind customers of an active recall of the Jack ‘N’ Jill – Wooden Block Sets (Farm, Jungle & Ocean),” they wrote.
“If you have not already, customers should immediately stop use and return the product to your nearest Aldi store for a full refund.
“We apologise for any inconvenience.”
Competitive supermarket giant, ALDI says they “take product safety seriously.”
Customers appreciated the reminder, with many tagging friends and family top share the message the second time around.
“OMG- just put mine in the bin,” shared one concerned mum. “So glad I saw this, 18 month old loves them.”
“Thank you. We have two tubs I’ll need to return.” shared another.
