Major retailer Target is recalling more than half a million Easter toys due to risks that children can eat the toys, which ingestion can cause intestinal obstructions, severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration, and can even be life-threatening. A “Fast Track Recall” was issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on Wednesday for 560,000 water-absorbent Hatch and Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino that are sold at Target for a dollar each.
As reported by NBC News, if a child eats one of the Hatch and Grow toys, surgery is required to remove the toy from the body.’” In addition, there may be a possibility that the toy might not show up on an x-ray.”
Consumers who purchased the water-absorbing Easter toys at Target or anywhere else are advised to immediately return the item for a full refund.
