Dangerous toy dolls banned across Europe have been seized from a market stall in Medway. Fruit-head dolls containing the chemical phthalates which can cause cancer, deformity in unborn babies and infertility in men, were confiscated by Medway Council Trading Standards.
Traders, who may buy them in good faith, if convicted, could face up to six months in prison and a fine of up to £5,000 for breaching toy safety rules. The dolls were discovered on a stall at a Medway market but the council say it cannot be identified while an investigation is continuing.
Cllr Peter Hicks, from Medway Council, said: 'These dolls were selling cheap and would appear to be an attractive present. I would urge anyone who has bought one of the dolls to keep it away from their children and tell our trading standards service immediately.'
