Aqua Dot toy recall

A toy called Aqua Dots is at the top of the toy recall lists. The United States issued a recall for the Chinese-made toy last week. They say some 4.2 million of them are contaminated with the "date rape" drug. It has caused illness in some.

It contains a chemical that converts into a "date rape" drug. Children who swallow the beads can develop respiratory problems, become comatose or have seizures.
"Anyone with Aqua Dots at home should throw them out," CPSC spokeswoman Julie Vallese said. The toy was named toy of the year in Australia and recently made Wal-Mart Store’s  list of top 12 Christmas toys. It has since been pulled.
