We’re being warned to be on the lookout for any dodgy Halloween gear – as trick or treaters prepare to hit the streets tonight.

Consumer Affairs Victoria has found more than 270 lines of products don’t meet safety standards, including:

Fake blood


Bow And Arrow Sets

Adhesive Scar And Burn Prosthetics.

“Unsafe items can cause severe injuries to consumers, which is why inspectors are working hard to ensure Halloween remains fun for all Victorians,” Minister for Consumer Affairs Marlene Kairouz said.


“We take a zero-tolerance approach when we find unsafe products, with inspectors making sure enforcement action for selling these products is one of our top priorities.”

“Consumer Affairs will continue to take product safety seriously and non-compliant or dangerous products will continue to be removed from shelves.”

All recalled products are available at the Product Safety Australia website.
