Choking hazard


A frisbee we bought for Grandson from Sainsbury's. It's a little over nine inches in diameter, so imagine our relief when Sainsbury's used a warning sticker to point out what could go so tragically wrong. We simply hadn't noticed the danger:-

WARNING! Not suitable for children under
3 years of age due to small parts -
choking hazard.

Do they mean the sticker? presumably they do.

Um, did you try frying or boiling it?

Demetrius - I think it would succumb to frying, but then the resulting mess would be such that the little ones would have to consume the whole pan.

In that case, surely the handle would still be accessible for de-choking.

Bizarre.

James - it is, because the only possible choking hazard is the sticker.

Maybe the frisbee (or Corporate Legal) would feel naked without one.

Roger - I suppose they must have a barcode and yes, they would feel naked without some warning info.
