ProblemSerious risk of drowning
Further information

This product presents with a serious risk of drowning as it was advertised as a life jacket but has been identified as a buoyancy aid (which does not provide the same level of protection). This product does not meet the minimum level of buoyancy and there are no minimum and maximum user's mass stated.

It was not supplied with the required compliance documentation or markings to demonstrate that they have been adequately conformity assessed. The omission of mandatory third-party conformity assessment by a body authorised for PPE may increase the risk to the consumer that the product may not perform as expected when relied upon as a buoyancy aid. It does not meet safety standards.

Product Description:

An orange and white children's vest style buoyancy aid with a front zipper closure and plastic front buckle on grey 25mm webbing. Reflective rectangular patches to each shoulder.
