The surveillance examined 19 different Easter eggs, eight of which did not meet the safety requirements of toy legislation.
The control was used to determine, using standard torsion and tensile tests, whether the parts of the toy capsules adhered to each other as required.
Toys inside the capsules or the egg shell of the egg were not monitored.
- As it may be difficult to open the toy capsule by hand, a child may try to open the package with their mouth.
Therefore, the packaging of a toy in food must be such that its parts cannot block the airways and cause a choking hazard, says Jenni Mutka, Tukes' chief inspector, in the press release.
Customs denied access to the market for products found to be irregular.
Based on its risk assessment, Tukes did not see any reason to take further measures in accordance with the Consumer Safety Act.
One operator withdrew products from the market and withdrew them from consumers on its own initiative.
