Target Issues Recall for Easter Toys
Target has issued a recall for about 560,000 Easter and Dino toys. Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino. Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs and Easter Grow Toys are specific items being recalled. These toys are water-absorbing and expand when used with water. The reason for the recall, is being the toys are small and could be eaten by a child. Once the toy is swallowed it can expand inside the child’s body and could get stuck in the intestines. This could cause severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration and could be life threatening. The only way to remove the toy is surgery. The other issue is that toy may not show up on an x-ray, making surgery difficult.
Consumers can call Target Monday through Sunday between 7am and 8pm at 1-800-440-0680. There is more about this recall, on the Target website and on their Facebook page. Specific information can be found on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website as well.
