Parents warned after dummies for sale breach safety standards

Parents are being warned about a brand of baby dummies, sold without the mandatory warning notice.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) said the 3 Little Birds BIBS Baby Dummies had no warning labels or directions provided to customers, and so do not comply with safety standards.

A warning notice should have been included advising parents a torn or broken dummy could pose a choking hazard while an attached cord or ribbon had a strangulation risk.

The dummies were available for sale in retailers nationwide between May to December 22 last year.
