Partygoers are being warned not to wear a brand of grotesque false teeth after a retailer discovered the product may be extremely hard to remove.
The Swiss-based Manor chain markets Rottin' Teeth as a "movie-quality" costume accessory, advertised with the slogan "stay put ... teeth will fit exactly in your mouth."
This catchphrase proved too true, however, and Manor was forced to issue a product recall after learning that users "might not be able to remove" them.
The teeth are aimed at costume-wearing revelers attending the annual Carnival season held in Europe's German-speaking countries. The festivities reach their peak in February.
