Indeed, Rappel Conso revealed that a “Little Monster” pencil from the Miquelrius brand could prove very dangerous for your children. While it can make little ones dream with its red pompom, it could cause terrible internal damage.

A prefectural decree was also issued this Monday, November 6 regarding this famous product. If this article alerted the authorities it is because of the absence of CE marking linked to the risk of ingestion.

Beware of the ballpoint pen

In an interview with, Aurélie Mathieu, coordinator of expertise on dangerous substances in supplies at the National Food Safety Agency (ANSES) spoke.

She revealed: “Ballpoint pens contain three harmful substances noted by UFC-Que Choisir. First the isothiazolinones. These are fairly common preservatives since they are found, for example, in certain detergents, paints and cosmetic products.”

Before specifying: “These are allergens. Added to this is benzyl alcohol, a perfuming substance that can cause skin allergies. It is regularly used in industry as a preservative, coloring or perfume.

If the ballpoint pen is not subject to a product recall, it is dangerous for health according to UFC-Que Choisir. The expert emphasized: “On the theoretical risks of cancer in ballpoint pens, danger does not mean risk« .

Before indicating: “There are many dangerous substances present, including a carcinogen that can lead to exposure without being able to conclude on the risk. Indeed, no risk assessment has been carried out.”
