The Environmental Protection Agency has risk-assessed products purchased from the online stores Ebay.com and Wish.com. The products are made of plasticised PVC, and three of the products can pose a serious health risk due to the high presence of the phthalates DIBP and DBP.

If you have purchased some of the three products, the Danish EPA recommends that you dispose of them according to the local municipal waste regulations.

The warning against the soft PVC products comes as part of the Environmental Protection Agency's PVC efforts, where the Board has analyzed a total of 54 PVC products purchased from foreign online stores for the presence of problematic additives (including phthalates). The Danish Environmental Protection Agency estimates that three of these products can pose a serious health risk to an adult using the product.
