The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued another recall on a toy for children. The Spin Master Aqua Dots are covered by a toxic chemical coating, the government said last week. One of the first original cases that spurred panic and the recall of this toy involved 20-month old Jack Esses of Arkansas.
The recall covers 4.2 million of the Aqua Dots Toys which consist of colored beads that can be arranged into designs and then fused together when sprayed with water. What seems like a great creative toy for innocent children, however, is covered with a chemical that metabolizes into the compound gamma hydroxy butyrate–the so-called date rape drug. This compound can induce unconsciousness, seizures, drowsiness, coma, and death.
The CPSC follows up with retailers to ensure the removal of the deadly product. However, what about those innocent consumers who have already relied on retailers like to Wal-Mart to only sell them safe toys for their children to play and learn with in their homes. A beloved child can already have been endangered and sickened by another product from China’s toy industry before a recall is issued.
