No toys in food products

FOOD products that contain a toy inside them are now banned in Slovakia after parliament passed an Act on Toy Safety on February 2 and President Ivan Gašparovič signed it into law on February 17. The ban pertains to items in which the food must be first consumed to get to the toy.

FOOD products that contain a toy inside them are now banned in Slovakia after parliament passed an Act on Toy Safety on February 2 and President Ivan Gašparovič signed it into law on February 17. The ban pertains to items in which the food must be first consumed to get to the toy.

The Economy Ministry assured Slovak consumers that the law will not endanger the sale of the popular Slovak “kinder surprises”, chocolate eggs with a toy in the middle by saying that these toys have a separate package which is not part of the food. The law bans, for example, a lollipop that has a toy in its middle because if the child wants to get to the toy the lollipop must first be eaten.

This law transposes stricter European child-safety rules into Slovakia’s legislation.
