EU officials are now requiring manufacturers to include a warning on toy soccer balls!
Despite the fact that the toy soccer balls generally have a circumference of 25 inches, they must now come with the following stamp of caution: "Warning! Not suitable for children under three years. Choking hazard."
One London shop owner said, "I sell hundreds of these balls every year, usually to parents with toddlers who are just learning to kick a ball. Nobody has ever pointed this out to me before, and obviously parents have never complained because there is no way a child could choke on something bigger than its own head."
One mother added, "My two-year-old daughter loves them... When I saw the health and safety warning I had to do a double take. I don't see how it is physically possible for her to choke on a ball that's bigger than her own head. In fact, it's bigger than my head."
