Chinese toys recalled for drug contamination PDF Print
Thursday, 08 November 2007 06:01
4.2 million Chinese-made Aqua Dots bead toys have been recalled.
The toys are coated with a chemical that, once metabolized, converts into the toxic “date rape” drug GHB, or gamma-hydroxy-butyrate, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission officials say. The chemical has caused some children to vomit and become comatose after swallowing the beads. The arts and crafts beads are aimed at children 4 years and older and have been selling since April. Anyone with Aqua Dots needs to throw them out, CPSC personnel warn. The toy recently made Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s list of top 12 Christmas toys. The toys have since been removed from Wal-Mart shelves. Last month, U.S. government safety officials and retailers recalled over 69,000 Chinese-made toys over concerns of excessive amounts of lead paint.
