Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some Doodlebutt Jelly BeadZ Jumbo BeadZ and Magic Growing Fruity Fun Water-Absorbing Polymer Toys. The Toys can absorb from 300 to 500 times their weight in water and can grow up to eight times their original size.

Jumbo BeadZ Toys are marble-sized water-absorbing balls. They were sold in a package consisting of three separate 2.5-inch x 2-inch clear, resealable bags inside a 3.5-inch by 4-inch clear, resealable bag. Each smaller bag had eight to 12 water balls of slightly different sizes. The balls came in clear, blue, red, orange, yellow, green and purple colors. The front of the larger bag had a multi-colored label with the words “Jelly BeadZ”, “Easy to follow directions” and had instructions for use.

Magic Growing Fruity Fun Toys are water-absorbing polymers in the shapes of apples, bananas, butterflies, cherries, grapes, pineapples, roses and strawberries. They were sold in 3.5-inch by 4-inch, clear, resealable bag with seven assorted shapes in it. They came in blue, green, orange, pink, red and yellow. The label on the front of the bag has the words “For ‘Kidz’ of All Ages” “Jelly BeadZ”, “Bouncy and Beautiful”, “Colorfast”, “Non Toxic”, “Safe for the Environment” and other words that describe uses for the product. The back of the package has two smaller labels. One label contains instructions for use and the other has a barcode with “XU00EC1JRN” beneath it.

According to the CPSC, these soft and colorful products can be mistaken by a child for candy. When swallowed, they can expand inside a child’s body and cause intestinal obstructions, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration and could be life threatening. Similar toys have not shown up on x-rays and needed surgery to be removed from the body.

The CPSC is aware of one incident with a similar water-absorbing polymer ball product in which an 8-month-old girl ingested the ball and it had to be surgically removed and two cases outside of the U.S. with one death.
