Sold by Harris Scarfe.

PSEA Department Stores Pty Ltd has recalled its Smith & Nobel 10kg electronic kitchen scale sold by Harris Scarfe nationally from 1 October 2016 to 19 December 2017.

The battery compartment on the kitchen scale is not adequately secured with a screw or mechanism, allowing possible access to the button batteries inside.

If young children access the button batteries and ingest them, they may suffer internal burn injuries, which can result in serious illness and even death. In addition, the batteries may pose a choking hazard to young children.

Consumers should stop using the product and return it to their nearest Harris Scarfe store for a full refund.
