– 2 Ton Hydraulic Floor Jack: The jack can collapse during use.
– Eternal Ink Nuclear Green: The product poses a chemical risk because it contains the aromatic amine o-Toluidine (120mg/kg) which is carcinogenic.
– YAMAHA NS50 AEROX Motorcycle: The carburettor cap guide tube containing the carburettor control cable may break during normal use. Its breakage will not affect the operation of the accelerator directly, but it may allow water or powder to enter the carburettor control cable. In the worst case, extremely low temperatures may cause the cable to stick as a result of the formation of ice which could lead to an accident.
Most of the infringing products originate from China (is that a surprise?), but the latest report contains two products of United States origin, as well as one of French, German, Dutch and Turkish origin respectively.

RAPEX is the EU rapid alert system that facilitates the rapid exchange of information between Member States and the Commission on measures taken to prevent or restrict the marketing or use of products posing a serious risk to the health and safety of consumers with the exception of food, pharmaceutical and medical devices, which are covered by other mechanisms.
Since 1 January 2010, as regards goods subject to EU harmonisation regulation, the system also facilitates the rapid exchange of information on products posing a serious risk to the health and safety of professional users and on those posing a serious risk to other public interests protected via the relevant EU legislation (e.g. environment and security). Both measures ordered by national authorities and measures taken voluntarily by producers and distributors are reported by RAPEX.
