Temple & Webster Water wings, which are hot pink and feature a seahorse on the side, were sold online nationally between 1 December 2016 and 4 October 2018.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said there is an increased risk of drowning if the product is not used as intended.

“The product does not comply with marking requirements of the mandatory standard ‘Consumer Goods (Swimming and Flotation Aids) Safety Standard 2017,” the ACCC said in a statement.
