Jamie Oliver’s collection of Garden Plus plush toys have been removed from supermarket toy shelves after being labeled dangerous by the toy safety body.

Woolworths has issued a recall of all plush toys from the range, consisting of eight characters: Orange, Bean, Banana, Broccoli, Beetroot, Pear, Grape and Tomato.

‘All eight characters may liberate stuffing during use and the hands and feet are small parts that are inadequately attached, presenting a potential choking hazard,’ read a statement from the ACCC website.

The full recall follows the recall of the Bean character earlier last week when it was discovered its internal wire could pierce its fabric with the potential to cause injury.

“All characters may have poorly attached hands and feet which can come free from the main body and could result in a choking hazard for small children,” said Woolworths.

“Also, the stalk of the bean character has an internal wire that has inconsistently finished ends which could pierce the fabric and if sharp could cause injury.”

Customers who bought these toys should stop using them immediately and return them to their nearest Woolworths of Safeway store for a full refund.

“Woolworths apologises for any inconvenience caused by this recall,” concluded the supermarket giant.
