Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the following Ooze Toy is subject to this recall:

The Ja-Ru’s Dino World Dino Ooze consists of a solvent mixture that comes in a variety of colours. Within the “ooze” is a plastic dinosaur fossil. Children can stretch the ooze with their hands. They can also insert the blow tube provided into the ooze and blow, causing the ooze to inflate like a balloon.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. The Toy has an item number of 1735 and a UPC of 075656017351.

According to Health Canada, testing has determined this product contains organic solvents. Children’s Balloon Blowing Kits that contain organic solvents are prohibited in Canada. The safety concern is that blowing the balloons exposes a child to inhaling the harmful vapours present in the solvents.

Children can be fascinated with these products, and if they blow balloons for extended periods they may experience early symptoms of central nervous system depression or dysfunction, including euphoria, hallucinations, dizziness, and difficulties with coordination of voluntary movements. Prolonged exposure can lead to more serious symptoms including muscular twitching, unconsciousness, and coma.

Health Canada, retailer Carlton Cards, and distributor Master Toys have not received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of this particular balloon blowing kit.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Ja-Ru’s Dino World Dino Ooze Toys, please do not let your children play with them. Instead, kindly take all solvent products that may be inflated into a balloon, no matter where purchased, away from children.

You may return Ja-Ru’s Dino World Dino Ooze Toys to local Carlton Cards stores for a full refund, or if you prefer, dispose of the product according to local municipal waste handling laws. Please ensure this Toy cannot be reused if disposing of the product yourself.

If you have any questions about this recall, please contact retailer Carlton Cards by telephone at 1-800-333-6724. Retailers may contact distributor Master Toys by telephone at 1-323-582-8881.
