Full Recall Info

No incidents or injuries have been reported yet, but the Consumer Product Safety Commission says the toys can expand in a child’s body after being swallowed, causing intestinal obstructions that could be life-threatening.

The toy may not show up on x-rays, and surgery is needed to remove the toy, the CPSC says.

The recalled Easter toys have model number 234-25-1200 on the packaging, while the Dino toys have number 234-09-0016. They were sold in Target stores from February through March for about $1.

Anyone who bought the recalled toys should return them to Target for a full refund.
