Squeezable toys known as Squishies are being recalled due to choking and suffocation fears.

The pink and white product is scented, and shaped like a slice of cake with a strawberry on top.

A statement on the Trading Standards website reads: “Due to its shape, colour, appearance and size, the product may be mistaken for foodstuff and the outer plastic packaging is too thin and too large.

“Small parts can easily be detached from the product and this may lead children to put them in the mouth and choke.

“If a child plays with the packaging the plastic could cover the mouth and nose, blocking the airways.”

The product details are below:
