‘Check yours’: QLD mum finds needle in Kmart baby toy
A CAIRNS mum was horrified when she discovered a pram toy bought for her baby was hiding a dangerous secret that could have caused serious injury to her child.
The woman bought an Anko brand toy pram hanger from Kmart and noticed there was a sharp needle embedded within a cloth bird (inset).
"Found this needle in toy pram hanger," she posted on social media.
"Bub was playing with it and I felt something hard in the bird.
"Thought I hadn't cut the plastic off properly so I gave it a little wiggle around and poked out this needle.
"Looks like a manufacturer's error with the machine as the needle is broken at the top, but just wanted to put a post up in case.
"Please, please check yours if you've got one."
The woman had emailed Kmart and was awaiting a response.
The Cairns Post has also contacted Kmart for comment.
