MORE than 3,200 toys have been withdrawn from sale by the Guardia Civil following concerns for safety.
The toys, mainly sold in low-cost bazaars, were found to not have met standards set out by the European Council. Legally a ‘CE’ mark is needed to sell a child’s toy within the European Economic Area, which certifies compliance with the regulatory requirements of the rules of commerce. However on inspection, the marks had different spacing between the two letters, meaning ‘China Export’ instead of the European Community symbol. Complaints of irregularities and safety were received more than 1500 times for over 350 types of toy.
Customers reported a lack of data on the toy such as no manufacturer details, no instructions and or them not being in Spain.
