Reasons the product is recalled

The toy's inner bubble casing may burst and release water-absorbing polymer balls. When exposed to liquid, the balls expand.

The hazards to consumers

If swallowed, the polymer beads can become large enough to create a gastrointestinal blockage, causing vomiting, severe discomfort and dehydration and may need to be surgically removed.

What consumers should do

Consumers should stop using the toy and keep it out of reach of children. Any consumer who has purchased the products from Australia Post or received the products as a gift should return the product to an Australia Post outlet for a full refund.

For more information, contact Australia Post on 13 13 18 (Monday to Friday, 8am – 6pm AEST).
