The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) along with Buffalo Games has issued a recall of its Chuckle & Roar Ultimate Water Beads Activity Kit. This recall comes after a 10-month-old baby died from swallowing the water beads, which were sold exclusively at Target.
These toys are marketed for children over the age of 4, but that doesn’t mean younger children can’t get ahold of them as well. The death of the 10-month-old from Wisconsin was reported to the company in July of 2023. The company also received a report of a 9-month-old in Maine swallowing the water beads in November 2022. That baby had to undergo surgery to remove the beads because they caused an intestinal blockage.
Not only are these water beads a choking hazard, but the CPSC says the beads can grow in size once they are ingested. That poses a risk of intestinal obstruction.
The CPSC is warning parents to immediately take the water bead away from their children and stop using them altogether. Here’s what you need to know about this recall.
What if my child has been hurt by these beads?
