I won’t usually post about toys and kids…but today it’s very important. My kids begged for the Aqua Dots and thank goodness I refused because now they are being recalled around the world.
The news reports say that the product, made in China, allegedly has a coating that has been made with a very toxic chemical that can cause severe reactions in children if the pieces are injested.
Quoted from a report at MSNBC.com:
“Scientists say a chemical coating on the beads, when ingested, metabolizes into the so-called date rape drug gamma hydroxy butyrate. When eaten, the compound — made from common and easily available ingredients — can induce unconsciousness, seizures, drowsiness, coma and death.”
Kids and pets…we all know they eat stupid things. Keep them safe.
Throw it deep into the trash today my friends. Don’t risk it.
