Treasures Recalls Toddler And Walker Nappy Pants

TREASURES TAKES PRECAUTIONARY STEP AND RECALLS
TODDLER AND WALKER NAPPY PANTS

27 February 2013

SCA Hygiene Australasia (SCA HA) is initiating a voluntary product recall of its Treasures Nappy Pants – Toddler and Walker (date codes: 19/09/2012; 02/09/2012; 08/10/2012). This precautionary move follows the discovery of an unusual odour emanating from one particular batch of the product once the individual packs or cartons are opened.

The company believes it is isolated to a handful of packs produced between these dates, but is recalling the entire batch as a precautionary measure. The recall only affects Treasures Nappy Pants Toddler and Walker ranges and no other Treasures products.


“SCA HA has decided to voluntarily recall these products in an effort to reassure our loyal consumers that nothing is more important to us than ensuring the safety and quality of our products,” explained Peter Diplaris, President, SCA HA.

Mr. Diplaris said preliminary tests indicate a very low risk of any potential adverse health effects. The company is now completing additional comprehensive investigations and assessments to better understand any potential risks.

“We have ascertained that this is not a manufacturing issue,” Mr Diplaris continued.


“The odour originated from a shipping container used to transport the product to New Zealand from Poland. While our Treasures nappies are proudly manufactured in New Zealand, all nappy pants – both ours and competitors – are manufactured overseas. This is because the technology required to produce nappy pants is specialised and not available in New Zealand. “


Consumers with an affected pack should dispose of it immediately and contact SCA HA Customer Service team to arrange reimbursement: email consumer.wr@sca-ha.com or phone 0800 124 727. To check the date, consumers should look at the first six digits of the batch code, located on the side, in black ink.

SCA HA sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused.
