Decathlon Inflatable Snorkel Wand Float Recall Due to Drowning Risk

A popular snorkel wand used by children while swimming has been urgently removed from shelves after it was discovered it could lead to an “increased risk of drowning”.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has urgently recalled Decathlon’s inflatable snorkeling wand float.

The product has been found not to meet the requirements of “2020 Consumer Goods (Water Toys) Safety Standard”.

As a result, there is an increased risk of children drowning.

“Users may not be aware of important safety information regarding the use of the product,” the warning says.

There is concern of a possible “increased risk of drowning” if the product is not used as intended.

Consumers are warned to “immediately stop using” the product.

They have been told to return the toy to Decathlon for a full refund.

The product has been sold nationally online.

It was also sold at the NSW store in Tempe, Auburn, and Miranda; and Box Hill, Moorabbin, Knoxfield and South Morang in Victoria.

The recall concerns all products sold from March 2020 to August 2022.
