Target is recalling thousands of water-absorbing toys because they pose a danger to children if swallowed.

According to WPRI 12, the recall affects approximately 560,000 Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino toys.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), if any of the toys are swallowed, they “can expand and obstruct a child’s intestines, potentially resulting in serious discomfort, dehydration, and vomiting, and could be life threatening.”

So far, no incidents have been reported to date, according to the CPSC.

The Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs and Easter Grow Toys has model number 234-25-1200, which is printed on the back of the packaging.  The Hatch Your Own Dino Egg has model number 234-09-0016.

Target sold the toys for about $1 at Target stores nationwide from February 2017 through March 2017.

Parents are advised to immediately take the recalled toys away from children and return it to Target for a full refund.

For more information, you can contact Target at 800-440-0680 between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. Eastern Time, or visit Target’s website.
