The problem

Countdown has recalled its Halloween flashing tumbler cups. Young children could access the button batteries because the battery cover can be opened without the use of a tool. Button batteries can cause serious injuries and be fatal if swallowed by young children.


The Halloween flashing tumbler cups were sold in Countdown supermarkets from 19 September 2016 - 28 October 2016.

Affected products are green and orange and can be identified by the item number 478646.
