A horrified mother urged parents to check their purchases for hidden dangers after discovering a sewing needle in a Kmart pram toy.
A Cairns mother urged parents to inspect their children’s toys for hidden dangers after finding a sewing needle (pictured) lodged in a pram hanger she bought from Kmart
The Cairns woman bought an Anko-branded stroller hanger from the retail giant for her baby to play with.
But once she had already taken it home, she found a sharp needle lodged in a fabric bird.
“I found this needle in a stroller hanger,” she wrote on Facebook, alongside a photo of the needle.
‘Bub was playing with it and I felt something hard in the bird.
“I thought I didn’t cut the plastic properly, so I waved it around a bit and pulled out this needle.
“Looks like a manufacturer’s mistake with the machine because the needle is broken at the top, but I just wanted to put a post just in case.
“Please check yours if you have one.” “
The worried mother said she contacted Kmart.
A Kmart spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia the incident was under investigation.
“At Kmart, the health and safety of all of our products is our number one priority,” they said.
“We are extremely concerned to learn of this and are in direct contact with the customer to further investigate to understand the source of the identified article. ”
