A whole heap of Decathlon swimming products, including children’s swim vests and arm floats, have been recalled due to drowning risks.
Over the last three days, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has issued recalls for eight items sold by the French sporting giant across all their Australian stores.
The goods are all branded under the ‘Nabaji’swimming brand and have been recalled due to their lack of safety warnings compliant with the Consumer Goods (Swimming and Flotation Aids) Safety Standard 2017.
The recall notice says “Users may not be aware of important safety information about the use of the product (i.e. only use under constant supervision),” the recall notice states. “There is potentially an increased risk of drowning if the product is not used as intended.”
These are the Nabaiji by Decathlon items recalled:
■ Inflatable armbands in mermaid pink, pirate blue, monkey green, orange (11-30kg), orange (30-60kg) and adult.
