Latest Toy Recall Linked To Date Rape Drug

Comments Off

The latest toy recall was announced today. A very popular toy, Aqua Dots, was recalled after it was found that the chemical in the toy when ingested turns into the date rape drug gamma hydroxy butyrate or ghb. There have been reports of children ingesting parts from the toy and becoming lethargic, vomiting and even lapsing into a coma. If ingested, the toy can also cause seizures or death.

This is just one of the latest toy recalls involving a toy in the United States that was imported from China. Aqua Dots which were sold throughout the U.S., and in Australia as Bindeez Dots, are now being pulled off of shelves. If you have Aqua Dots you should dispose of the toy immediately.

If your child has had any of the above symptoms and might have ingested beads from Aqua Dots contact a physician immediately. The side effects can be life threatening.

If your child has been affected by the recall contact an attorney to find out what legal action you may be able to take. You should keep the beads if a safe place where your child cannot reach them while your possible claim is being investigated.
