Horse stable door bolted

Germany's Federal Network Agency waited until hundred/thousands/millions of these toys were sold before they decided to ban them?

Shouldn't the powers that be be stopping these toys being imported and sold in the first place?

I mean it's not as if the EU doesn't have a huge number of regulations and staff to see they are complied with. Someone should have noticed that the toy has a wireless transmitter built into it and asked what it's for.
