East Tāmaki business The Quick Dollar has been fined $60,000 for selling more than 1300 children’s toys that were a choking hazard and had easy access to batteries, Stuff reports. The Commerce Commission brought charges under the Fair Trading Act against the Auckland company, following an investigation that began in 2019. Concerns were raised by the commission about three toys in particular that The Quick Dollar supplied, stating they didn’t comply with product safety standards. The toys were imported from China and India and sold on to various retailers in New Zealand.
