Bunnings issues nationwide recall of oil column heaters

Bunnings has issued a recall for all Moretti and Click oil column heaters due to fears hot oil may spray out, causing serious injury.

The hardware giant said the recall is a precautionary measure following the recall of the Moretti 5 Fin and Moretti 11 Fin Oil Column Heaters.

“The Moretti 5 Fin and 11 Fin Oil Column Heaters were recalled following reports from a number of customers of oil having leaked and in some instances sprayed,” Bunnings said in a recall notice posted on their website.

“We want to make sure customers are aware that there is a risk that these heaters could rupture when turned on and allow hot oil to spray out, with the potential to cause scalding and burns.”

Bunnings said that they have not had similar incidents reported with any other oil column heaters under the Moretti and Click brands, however “additional testing by suppliers suggests an incorrect specification of oil could have been used in some of the heaters.”

Customers have been urged to stop using the heaters immediately and return them to the nearest Bunnings store for a full refund. Further details here.

RECALL Hyland’s homeopathic teething

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) wants all Hyland’s homeopathic teething and baby nighttime teething tabs to be returned to their place of purchase, because of fears about the effects of the potentially toxic plant belladonna.

TGA published a notice in their bulletin on Saturday, which stated:

“While the TGA had tested samples of these products supplied in Australia and found no quality issues, Kadac is now recalling the tablets as a precautionary measure due to the potential safety risk that belladonna alkaloids can pose to children.”

“The effects of belladonna can be unpredictable and could cause serious health problems.”

Information for consumers

If you have any Hyland’s Baby teething tablets or Hyland’s Baby nighttime teething tablets, do not use them. Return them to the place of purchase for a refund or call Kadac on 1300 762 025.

Parents are being warned of a major nationwide recall involving a popular brand of baby biscuits.

The Organix Finger Foods baby biscuits have been pulled from shelves over fears they may pose a choking hazard to infants.

According to a recall notice posted on the Australian and New Zealand Food Standards website, the biscuits are too crumbly.

“The product can crumble into pieces which may pose a potential choking hazard,” the notice reads.

The recalled biscuits, which come in three flavours: creamy vanilla, strawberry and banana, have been available for sale at Coles, Woolworths and some health food stores nationally.

Parents have been urged to stop using them and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Another recall issued recently included a plastic bath insert.

According to ACCC the product warning label is non-compliant with wording as required by the mandatory standard Trade Practices.

“If the correct warning label is not present consumers may not be alerted to the drowning hazard.”

Consumers are asked to return the bath aid to a Toys “R” Us or Babies “R” Us store for a full refund.

While we understand the legalities involved, some parents are disgusted that this is NOT just common sense.

  • it is not funny when the recalls are for baby items. what is happening to the standards?

  • Gee, keeping on top of product recalls is becoming a full time job. Perhaps we should focus on slowing down and buying less cheap and quick imported goods?

  • One good thing is how much more widely these recalls can be sharedthese days.

  • It’s a shame that the Australian Standards wasn’t met when these items were first released for sale – pretty shocking that companies say they comply but in actual fact they dont.

    Some things though I think are just plain ridiculous – recalling a tshirt because the button make cause a choking risk? – there are buttons on just about all clothing, buttons fall off all the time – are we going to go that overboard where we pull all clothing because it has buttons on it, are we going to pull smarties off the shelves because they pose a choking risk? I think surely some common sense from both consumers and companies needs to come into play here!

  • Hmm, the homeopathic tablet got recalled because they contain belladonna ? When we were little kids my mum had always belladonna at home which we got by tummy aches//cramps and colds. Never had any negative symptoms, to be honest it helped.

  • In the case of a fire, insurance will not cover any damage done by a oil coil heater. I got rid of 2 for that reason after I discovered the exclusion in our house contents policy exclusions. They aren’t cheap to run either.

  • My kids don’t have a Razor Ripstik Electric, but I can imagine you can fall quite hard when the rear wheel locks up and that this poses an injury hazard.

  • Even though some of these recalls are okay if you use common sense, it’s still safer just to return unless you are happy to fix the problems yourself. Better to be safe than sorry.

  • I find some of these recalls really over the top. A button which can come loose from a shirt ? Come on, any button can do that and we as parents should check our wash and see if anything needs mending…idem for toys, we should check the battery compartments , the toys and the screws regularly .And a biscuit that is too crumbly ? As parents we know what are children are able to cope with. That is for each child different. My girl with Down Syndrome was when she was just 3 still choking on a sip of water and I had to thicken the water.
    All what I’m saying is that parents are responsible what they give to their kids depending if the kids can handle it.

  • Thanks for the alert. I had the rusk biscuits on hand for my neice, heard the recall, and gave them to our dog. I was actually shocked to see 3 biscuits were already broken when I opened the packaging.

  • Wow terrible. I didn’t even know what this razor thing was – thought it was for shaving :). Thanks.

  • thanks for sharing, good to know.

  • Thank you so much for sharing these. Recalls can often get missed amongst other stuff, so thank you.

  • I kept giving those biscuits to my son. He’s three. If he can’t handle crumbly biscuit then I’ve failed as a mother much more than just not returning a pack of biscuits we got as a sample. I think we have one of those trains floating around too. Also not going back.
