The consumer protection service said on Tuesday that it has launched a campaign to check “lucky bags” on the market for dangerous materials and contents.
Lucky bags contain a variety of items including toys, the small parts of which might be dangerous or even deadly to children, the service said, adding that some of the materials used could also be harmful.
Taking into account the dangers associated with these items and considering the range of lucky bags on the market, the service will be checking over 150 selling points islandwide in order to recall any dangerous lucky bags and inform retailers.
As part of the campaign the service has posted a leaflet (in Greek) on its website to help parents identify small items that could be dangerous to children under three.
The campaign started on Monday and continues until May 21.
