Check your toy or science bins for our latest product recall! Be Amazing! Toys announced the recall of more than 14,000 Monster Science and Super Star Science Colossal Water Balls due to serious ingestion hazards.
The soft and colorful product can be easily mistaken by a child for candy. When the marble-sized toy is ingested, it can expand inside a child’s body and cause intestinal obstructions, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration and could be life threatening. The toys do not show up on an x-ray and require surgery to be removed from the body.
This recall involves marble-sized toys that absorb water and grow up to 400 times their original size. They were sold as Monster Science Colossal Water Balls (model #7255) and Super Star Science! Colossal Water Balls (model #7704).
The toys were sold at specialty retailers and educational centers nationwide and online at Amazon.com, BeAmazingToys.com and WorldMarket.com from September 2010 through November 2012 and retailed for about $3 per package.
The company is offering full refunds to customers. You can reach them at (877) 798-9795 or online at www.beamazingtoys.com.
