Target has issued a massive recall of 560,000 egg toys ahead of Easter Sunday after discovering that they can expand inside of a child's body and cause life-threatening conditions if ingested.
The hatch-and-grow eggs were sold in stores nationwide from February through March for about $1.
Consumers should immediately take this recalled toy away from children and return it to any Target store for a full refund.
Target has stores in:
- Bethel and
- two in Trumbull
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, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
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.
