Sostrene Grene issues recall of soft toys over 'choking hazard'

Parents are being advised of an urgent recall on a number of soft toys.

Two items sold by Danish retailer Sostrene Grene were found to have parts that could be pulled off, creating a choking hazard for young children.

"Unfortunately, we have identified a risk that the small round pieces at the end of the toys’ antennae can be pulled off, which means they could constitute a choking hazard," a statement said.

The soft toys in question are a Space Rocket and Astronaut.

Customers are being urged to return the products to any of their six Irish stores for a full refund by August 31.
