Faulty kids vaporiser recalled over burn warning



Babies and young kids risk being burned by some faulty batches of a popular vaporiser which is designed to create a better night's sleep.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration urgently recalled four batches of the Euky Bear warm steam vaporiser because a heating element can get too hot and disintegrate.

If the heating module finger is exposed, a child can be burned, the TGA warned.

A faulty device can also produce smoke and fumes, the agency said.

The affected batch numbers, found on the base of the box or underside of the blue heating module, are: 297553, 230301, 231101, A231101 and B231101.

Anyone who has bought a faulty model should contact Euky Bear for a replacement or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.

Established 40 years ago, Euky Bear is an Australian-owned company which makes products for babies and young children.
