11 March 2022

Australia Post has withdrawn from sale and is conducting a voluntary recall of the following product:

  • Squeeze Bead Plush Animal Toy

Please see the recall notice below.

What’s happened?

The recall is happening because:

  • the toy’s inner bubble casing may burst and release water-absorbing polymer beads. When exposed to liquid, the balls expand. 
  • if swallowed, the polymer beads can become large enough to create a gastrointestinal blockage causing vomiting, severe discomfort and dehydration and may need to be surgically removed. 

What do I need to do?

  • consumers should stop using the Squeeze Bead Plush Animal Toy immediately and keep it out of reach of children and pets.
  • return the product to any Australia Post outlet for a full refund.

We’re sorry

Australia Post takes situations like these very seriously, and we apologise if this has caused any inconvenience.
