Target's Hatch and Grow Easter Egg are intended to grow in water before a child's eyes. But are being recalled because they can lead to life-threatening complications if swallowed.
Since the toys expand in water, they also expand inside the child if they are swallowed.
This can lead to intestinal obstructions, severe discomfort, vomiting and dehydration and the toy then needs to be surgically removed. It also may not even show up on an X-ray.
Over 560,000 of the eggs have already been sold nationwide between February 2017 and March 2017. They retailed for $1.
