The Salt Lake City, Utah-based Be Amazing! Toys has announced the recall of Monster Science Growing Spider toy sets only available from Target, Spirit Halloween, and Cracker Barrel between August 2011 and August 2013 (exact dates will vary depending on the store). 26,500 water absorbent polymer balls are being recalled because of their possible expansion within a child’s system if he or she believes that the product is some type of candy and swallows it. This could create serious health issues exacerbated by the fact that an x-ray would not illuminate the expanded toy. No injuries have been reported in association with this particular product, but owners are being asked to place the toy someplace kids can’t get to it. They can then get in touch with the company to get their money back.
