Beware: Easter egg toy recalled due to serious ingestion hazard

Yesterday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the recall of a small, water-absorbing Easter egg toy that, when ingested, can expand within a child’s body. Ultimately, this expansion can cause serious intestinal obstructions, resulting in vomiting, dehydration and severe discomfort. According to the CPSC recall notice, ingestion of this water-absorbing Easter toy can even be life threatening.

With Easter just a few days away, parents need to be aware of this recall. After all, the last thing they would want to do is give their children a dangerous, and potentially life-threatening, toy come Easter morning.

Identifying the dangerous product

In addition to the hazardous Easter egg toys referenced above ― otherwise known as Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs — this recent recall involves two other products: Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino Eggs.

The Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs come in pink, blue or purple, and, when placed in water, “hatch” an Easter character, such a white bunny, brown bunny or butterfly. Similarly, the Easter Grow Toys include a white bunny, brown bunny or yellow chick. According to the CPSC recall notice, both of these Easter toys have the following model number on the back of their packaging: 234-25-1200.

In addition, the Hatch Your Own Dino Eggs contain one of eleven different dinosaurs and come in purple or yellow/green, with a model number of 234-09-0016. If you would like to learn more about these recalls or see photos of the specific products at issue, please feel free to visit the CPSC recall site.

If you believe you may have purchased one of the dangerous Easter toys, you should immediately take it away from children and return it for a full refund.
