Exclamation BINDEEZ _ VERY DANGEROUS product recall

Hi guys im sorry if this is in the wrong place but didnt know where else to put it and felt it was very important if you have bought any of these that you should know that they are very dangerous!!

I bought the Bindeez Delux last week from Amazon and was told by a friend that she had read an article in the Telegraph and they give off fumes like the date rape drug!!!!!

I watched all news channels and didnt see any mention of this!!

Of course I immediately got in touch with Amazon and all Bindeez products are being recalled at no cost to the consumer. I also found out that Argos and Woolwoths have withdrawn them too .

If you, like me have bought these for christmas presents or have any of the beads DO NOT let your children play with them!!

Importer: Character Options Ltd, Oldham, OL4 5JL
Hazard: Some batches of the beads in the product shipped do not match the laboratory tested and approved formula. As a result, whilst not intended to be eaten, if ingested in large quantities may cause illness.
Incidents/injuries: No cases of illness have been reported within the UK and Eire.
Sold: In all major Retail Stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland from November 2006 to November 2007
Remedy: As a precaution, Consumers should immediately remove the beads from play and safely dispose of. Please dispose of the beads in a poly bag and put in with your domestic waste.
Replacement beads will only be available direct from Character Options and not from Point of Purchase
These replacement beads will be coated with Bitrex, a safe solution which on contact leaves a bitter taste; this is designed to dissuade children from placing the product in the mouth.
Please contact Character Options for free replacement beads on the above recall helpline, email us on customercare@charactergroup.plc.uk or visit
