Check your homes for these Dune Craft toys which are being recalled as they pose a potential choking hazard.

Dune Craft are recalling three types of their expandable toys which can enlarge up to 200 times their size.

All of their Spider Balls, Water Marbles and Glow in the Dark Spit Balls are being withdrawn from the market - and customers with any of these toys are urged to stop their children playing with them immediately and to return them for a full refund.

Suffolk Trading Standards have warned customers that the balls can be put into the mouth and swallowed by children - expanding and causing a fatal occlusion of the respiratory track or intestinal blockage of small children.

Therefore the products do not comply with the requirements of the Toy Safety Directive and the relevant European standard EN 71-1.
