Easter Safety Reminder: Kinder Eggs Banned In US Due To Choking, Aspiration Hazards to Young Children

The CPSC is reminding parents that Kinder Surprise Eggs are banned for sale in the United States because the toy surprise hidden inside can pose choking and aspiration hazards to children younger than 3 years of age.

The Kinder eggs are hollow milk chocolate eggs about the size of a large hen’s egg in an orange, white and blue foil wrapper. The toy within the egg is contained in an oval-shaped plastic capsule. The toy requires assembly and each egg contains a different toy. The labeling is in various languages.

Consumers who have purchased this product should immediately take them away from young children.
