CPSC, Be Amazing Toys alert parents of potential choking hazards

Posted: Updated:

Be Amazing Toys is recalling its Monster Science and Super Star Science colossal water balls because they pose a serious ingestion hazard.

Consumer Product Safety Commission officials say children can mistake them for candy.
Once inside a child's body, the ball can expand -- growing up to 400 times its original size.
That can cause intestinal obstructions and could be life threatening.

No injuries have been reported.   However, the CPSC is aware of one incident with a similar product that required surgery to remove it.

If you have one, officials say take it away from the children and contact Be Amazing Toys at www.beamazing.com or 1-877-798-9795  for a refund.
