Taiwan institutions detected that the plasticizer of bath toys made in the mainland exceeded the standard

the plastic toys that children love to play most when bathing are likely to have potential safety hazards. According to Taiwan media reports, the Taiwan consumer culture and Education Foundation (hereinafter referred to as the Taiwan Consumer Foundation) has recently tested a number of bathing plastic toys made in the mainland, including the most common yellow bathing duck. The content of plasticizer is 62 to 380 times higher than the local and international standards. When encountering hot water, bathing milk and other oily substances, plasticizer can be released, which can be ingested by children through the skin or when putting toys into the mouth

it is understood that the safety standards for plasticizers in the mainland have not yet been issued. Relevant experts from the toy Laboratory of Zhejiang Academy of inspection and Quarantine Science and Technology (hereinafter referred to as Zhejiang Academy of inspection and Quarantine) said in an interview yesterday (March 29) that compared with hard plastic products, soft plastic products are more likely to contain plasticizers. When parents buy toys, they must see whether there is a 3C certification mark on the package

"bathing duck" plasticizer exceeded the standard seriously

it is reported that the samples sampled by Taiwan Consumer Foundation and Taiwan standards inspection department this time came from channels such as Shanghai, toy retail stores, hypermarkets and department stores. 20 "children's bathing toys" were randomly purchased for testing. The results showed that 5 of them were tested to contain plasticizer, of which 4 were made in the mainland, and the most serious one was "12 ducks", For enterprises, the content of phthalate ester (DEHP) is as high as 36.05%, and the content of dibutyl phthalate (DBP) is also 2.009%, which is 380 times higher than the local standard

the Taiwan Consumer Foundation pointed out that according to the provisions of the standard cns4797 "toy safety (General requirements)", the weight ratio of the total content of DEHP, DBP, BBP, DINP, DIDP, DnOP and other six phthalate ester plasticizers and their mixtures of related commodities shall not exceed 0.1%

Taiwan Consumer Foundation stressed that plasticizer is a kind of "environmental hormone", which can interfere with endocrine. 3. It is a force sensor substance of tension machine, which may interfere with and destroy the balance and function of children's original endocrine system, feminize men or increase women's risk of breast cancer, and increase girls' risk of precocious puberty

for toy products whose quality tests do not meet the standards, the Taiwan Consumer Foundation said that the standard inspection department has notified the industry to recover and correct within a time limit in accordance with relevant regulations. Those who do not correct will be fined not less than NT $100000 but not more than NT $1million

it is understood that plastic bath toys may be easier to release plasticizer when encountering hot water and bath milk, and penetrate into the water of the bath basin, which can be ingested by children through the skin or when the toy is put into the mouth. Experts call on parents to avoid giving the compressive strength of building materials such as young mortar for safety reasons. This experimental machine is an electro-hydraulic child product. The more people use it in the industry, the more they play with these bathing toys

expert: soft plastic products are more dangerous

it is found that this yellow bathing duck rubber toy is also very common in the mainland market. Enter the keyword "bathing duck" on Taobao, and more than 4700 related products appear, with a set selling price ranging from 3 yuan to 6 yuan

xuxiaochun, head of the toy Laboratory of Zhejiang Academy of inspection and research, said that plasticizer, also known as plasticizer, is an additive that increases the softness of materials, so it often appears in soft plastic products, such as soft plastic bath toys, inflatable toys, etc., and the possibility of containing plasticizer will be higher

it is reported that at present, the safety standards for plasticizers in the mainland have not been issued, but the European Union has strict standards for this: toys are not allowed to contain phthalates (DEHP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and phenyl butyl phthalate (BBP), which are defined as renewable toxic substances

Xu Xiaochun reminded that at present, the mainland has implemented a compulsory certification system (referred to as 3C certification) for six categories of toy products, including strollers, electric toys, catapult toys, metal toys, doll toys and plastic toys. Such products that have not obtained compulsory certification will not be allowed to leave the factory, sell, import or be used in other business activities

he suggested that when consumers buy toys, they must see whether there is 3C certification mark on the package. Generally, products with 3C certification mark have relatively reliable quality and safety. However, even toys with the "CCC" logo may not be safe, because some enterprises that have not obtained 3C certification will also paste the "CCC" logo on their toys. Therefore, in order to identify the authenticity, consumers can log in to the official website of the national certification and Accreditation Administration Commission, click "CCC certification query", enter the number under the 3C mark of toy packaging, and check whether it corresponds to the information on the packaging to identify the authenticity
