Aldi's plea to customers over toy recall: 'Risk of death'
Aldi has issued an urgent plea to customers, due to the low number of returns relating to a recall which was issued almost two years ago.
In September 2020, Aldi recalled the Jack 'N' Jill Wooden Block Sets, in the Farm, Ocean and Jungle varieties.
The recall notice was issued due to the possibility of small magnets detaching and falling off and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) said the toys were not up to standard.
"If the small magnets detach from the blocks, they pose a risk of choking, suffocation or death for young children," the recall notice from 2020 says.
Customers were told to stop using the products immediately and return them to their nearest Aldi store for a full refund.

However, it appears not many people returned the items.
On Tuesday, due to the "low number of returns," Aldi reminded customers of the recall of the Jack ‘N” Jill - Wooden Block Sets (Farm, Jungle and Ocean).
Aldi said the recall was still active and the sets were sold in stores from June 10, 2020 until September 9, 2020.
"If you have not already, customers should immediately stop use and return the product to your nearest Aldi store for a full refund," Aldi said in the post from Tuesday.
"We apologise for any inconvenience."
The ACCC said the wooden block sets were sold in stores at the ACT, NSW, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.
