Target has recalled approximately 560,000 water-absorbing Easter and dinosaur toys due to the danger of children swallowing them.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says if the small toy is ingested, it can expand inside a child's body and cause intestinal obstructions, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting and dehydration. It could be life-threatening.
The CPSC says surgery is required to remove the toy from the body, if ingested. They say there is a possibility that the toys might not show up on an X-ray.
However, no injuries have been reported.
The recall involves Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino. The toys were sold at Target stores nationwide from February 2017 through March 2017 for about $1.
Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs and Easter Grow Toys have model number 234-25-1200 on the back of the product's packaging.
Hatch Your Own Dino Egg has model number 234-09-0016 on the label inserted in the product's packaging.
The pink, blue, or purple Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs include a white bunny, brown bunny, or butterfly.
The Easter Grow Toys include a yellow chick, brown bunny, or white bunny.
The Hatch Your Own Dino Eggs are purple or yellow/green and contains one of 11 dinosaurs.
The CPSC says consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and return it to any Target store for a full refund.
