The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission have issued a recall alert for Kaisercraft's Kaiser Kids Slap Band Watches, urging consumers to immediately stop using the products and return them.
According to the ACCC the products do not comply with the 'Consumer Goods (Products Containing Button/Coin Batteries) Safety Standard 2020'.
"If the watch face is removed from the slap band, the battery compartment of the watch is not adequately secured and the button battery in the product is easily accessible." the Australian watchdog revealed in a statement.
It's believed 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.
The commission is urging consumers to immediately stop using the products and return them to the nearest Kaisercraft store to receive a full refund.
For further information, consumers can contact Kaisercraft by phoning 03 5240 2000 (Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm AEDT) or via email at email@example.com or go to www.kaisercraft.com.au
