Argos recalls toy horse amid choking fears

High Street retailer Argos is reportedly recalling a children’s toy over health fears.

According to the Trading Standards website, the Chad Valley Pipsie the Interactive Horse is said to be a chocking hazard that could lead to internal injuries.

The statement recall reads: “A fault has been identified where the apples could break apart and release the internal magnet. This is a choking hazard and if ingested could lead to internal injuries.”

Parents are being urged to remove the apples immediately, and dispose of them with normal household waste.

As a replacement, the company is offering a set of cupcakes for Pipsie, which parents can register for here.
