The branded children's products were recalled due to a possibly deadly hazard.
A collection of toys featuring popular characters from the Harry Potter and Marvel universes have been recalled across Australia due to fears that small pieces could be choking hazards.
Sold at the stationery retailer, Typo, the projection pens have been available in stores and online since the end of 2019. The toys were officially recalled by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) this week.
The light-up pens feature a small button battery that the retail authority felt was not properly secured in the body of the pen and could therefore be easily accessed by small children. This could then prove to be a choking hazard, especially if small children manage to remove the poorly-secured battery.
Swallowing and ingesting a battery - even a tiny one - is extremely dangerous. In a worst-case scenario, children could suffer from internal burns if they consume the battery, which the ACCC states could lead to serious injury or even death.
Anyone who purchased the Marvel "Avengers Assemble" or Harry Potter "Lumos" pens between the end of last year and September of this year, should immediately head to their local Typo store for a refund.
The product codes are 138316-08 and 138316-09 on the packaging of the pens.
