On July 31, 2013, the company Be Amazing! Toys announced the recall of nearly 16,000 units of its Water-Absorbing Polymer Balls sold in the United States and Canada.
The company reports that a potential hazard has been discovered. If a child were to ingest the toys, the balls could expand inside the child’s body, obstructing passageways and causing severe discomfort, dehydration and vomiting. The balls do not show up on x-rays and, if untreated, the obstructions caused by the balls could be life-threatening.
So far, no personal injuries have been reported from Be Amazing! Toys’ product. But in at least one incident, an 8 month-old girl had to have a similar water-absorbing toy surgically removed.
The balls were sold in stores nationwide and online from September 2010 through November 2012.
Consumers who purchased the product are urged to immediately take the toys away from children and contact Be Amazing! Toys for a full refund.
