Recall of unsafe animal toy after unsafe levels of plasticiser found

SPRING Singapore has found that a toy given out as a free gift contains unsafe levels of phthalates, commonly used as a plasticiser in toys. 

The free gift comes in the shape of cows, deers and ponies. 

SPRING had sent samples of the toy for testing in response to a consumer's complaint. 

As a precaution, SPRING had asked the retailer Aura Roboclean Singapore Pte Ltd to immediately stop distributing the product. 

The retailer is contacting customers who were given the toys to stop using them and dispose of them immediately, or return them to the company. 

So far, between 300 and 400 toy animals have been given out.
