SPAIN reports some of the highest levels of hazardous products in the European Union, according to a European Commission report released on Monday.
The report found Spain recorded the third highest number of alerts regarding dangerous products – receiving 280 calls in total. The country was only exceeded in complaints received by Hungary with 291 alerts, and Germany with 296.
The higher levels of reports do not necessarily mean a higher risk to the public – it could also represent a higher level of awareness of dangerous items on our streets and higher standards in the consumer market.
Dangerous toys made up more than a quarter all alerts, with clothing and fashion items representing the second greatest risk group.
