    Unsafe baby pacifiers seized

    30-03-2010


    The authorities say a type of baby pacifier available in Hong Kong has been found to contain eight times the permitted level of a suspected cancer-causing substance. It also failed to carry a label to warn that the product may pose a strangulation danger if tied around a child's neck.
    The problems were found during a recent spot check on children's products.

    The Customs and Excise Department has seized a quantity of the product from a supplier and its four retail outlets.

    Can't protect my child from everything...I tried and still am trying...=(
