Dunecraft Toys Found to Characterize Ingestion Harm, Toys Recalled

After it was revealed that the Dunecraft toys possessed ingestion harm, they were recalled by the company at the earliest. The toys included Water Balz (round-shape), Growing Skulls (skull-shape), H2O Orbs (round-shape) and Fabulous Flowers (flower-shape).

These toys are actually marble-sized but on being dipped in water, they expanded to 400 times their original size. They come in packings of different colors and are manufactured in China and the US. The products are imported by the Dunecraft Inc. of Cleveland.

Recently, it was found that the toys if ingested by children get expanded in small intestine and blocks it. It leads a child to suffer from vomiting, dehydration and discomfort. Experts said that they could be life threatening too. They are not visible in X-ray and can only be removed after surgery.

The concerns were raised after a girl from Texas ingested a toy, which had to be later removed by the surgery. As of now, a total of 94,700 toys have been sold out in the US and 600 in Canada. Dunecraft has recalled the toys and sent out messages to the parents of the kids to keep them away from these toys.

The firm has also urged them the parents who have bought these toys to call them on 1-800-306-4168 between 8 am and 5 pm.
