With Easter just a couple of days away it seemed like an ideal time to inform everyone of yet another recall. Target has recently released a statement issuing a massive recall for water absorbing egg toys. They claim the expanding parts can be ingested by children and swell up in the body resulting in major internal damages.
According to AFF:
This recall involves Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino. Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs and Easter Grow Toys have model number 234-25-1200 on the back of the product’s packaging.
Hatch Your Own Dino Egg has model number 234-09-0016 on the label inserted in the product’s packaging. The pink, blue, or purple Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs include a white bunny, brown bunny, or butterfly.
About 560,000 of the toys were sold.
The affected products were sold at Target stores from February 2017 through March 2017.
Authorities recommend parents take purchased toys away from their children and return them to a Target location for a full refund. The toys were sold for $1, and came in various colors and combinations.
Target at 800- 440-0680 between 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT Monday through Sunday, online at www.target.com and click on “Recalls” at the bottom of the page, then on “School/Stationery/Seasonal” for more information, or the “Product Recalls” tab on Target’s Facebook page.
Here is the link to the recall.
Surgery is required if the toy is accidentally swallowed so it is very important to be aware of this dangerous toy. I am glad that this was discovered so quickly! I hope that no child is injured over this toy this blessed holiday season.
Please share this with everyone you know.
