Target’s Easter egg toy recall

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports some 560,000 Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino Eggs have been recalled for serious ingestion hazard.

Because the toys expand in size when they’re wet, they could potentially block a child’s intestines if swallowed and may require surgery to remove.

Look for model number 234-25-1200 on the packaging of the Easter toys. The Dino toys, meanwhile, have a number of 234-09-0016.

Here are some further details about the products:

  • The pink, blue, or purple Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs include a white bunny, brown bunny or butterfly.
  • The Easter Grow Toys include a yellow chick, brown bunny or white bunny.
  • The Hatch Your Own Dino Eggs are purple or yellow/green and contains one of 11 dinosaurs.

All products were sold in Target’s $1 discount alley during February and March.

Anyone who bought one of the recalled toys should return them to the store for a full refund.
