Most of the time, the things we buy for Easter weekend are harmless. But the Consumer Product Safety Commission has urged a recall of every Hatch & Grow Easter Egg and Target is implementing the process. According to the CPSC website, these particular eggs have a unique risk to children.
If the small 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. Surgery is required to remove the toy from the body, if ingested. Medical professionals and parents should be aware that there is a possibility that the toys might not show up on an x-ray.
If you happen to have purchased these eggs for your Sunday festivities, please visit the Target Recall page for the product in question.
