Kmart urgently recalls popular item

 

Kmart has recalled a popular Christmas decoration over fears it could pose a risk to native flora and fauns in Australia and New Zealand.

The major retailer pulled its Half Wicker Wreath with Berries from shelves both in-store and online following the biosecurity risk.

The product, which features foliage and berries, has been available in Kmart stores from September 26 to December 7, 2020 and customers who bought the decoration have been urged to stop using it, amid fears it might contain unwanted organisms that could affect plants native to Australia and New Zealand.
