WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Target has issued a voluntary recall of several water absorbing Easter toys because they could be life-threatening if eaten.

Product description:

  • 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 eleven dinosaurs.

According to the CPSC.gov recall website, the small toy could expand inside a child's body if ingested and "cause intestinal obstructions, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration and could be life-threatening."

Surgery is required to remove the toy and there is a possibility it may not show up on an x-ray.

The toys were sold at Target stores nationwide from February 2017 through March 2017 for about $1. This toy should be taken away from children immediately and can be returned to Target for a full refund.

No injuries or incidents have been reported in connection to the toy as of April 13, 2017.
