Parents are being warned that the plastic packaging of a Halloween headband poses a suffocation risk to children. The warning came after customs officers recently conducted spot checks on retailers supplying Halloween toys and 23 samples were sent to a government laboratory for safety tests. The customs department also served a notice on the retailer prohibiting the supply of the toy. Investigations are continuing.
