The report claims that smaller Chinese manufacturers are struggling to ensure their products meet the standards required, as they lack knowledge of proceedures and staff training.

In recognising that the Chinese authorities have made a lot of progress in tightening testing proceedures and tackling abuses of the system, the report has made a further 50 reccommendations on how to tighten up safaety procedures, including warning about the dangers posed by magnets in toys.

European consumer affairs commissioner, Meglena Kuneva, is due to show the report to Chinese officials next month.

Kuneva said: "Despite the many efforts undertaken by the various actors in the toy supply chain the recall show there are still too many unsafe toys appearing on the EU market."
