    Target has issued a recall on some of its toys, including the Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino for a serious ingestion hazard.

    Target issued a recall for a series of water-absorbing easter and dinosaur toys Thursday, after it was found they present a serious ingestion hazard.

    The Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino toys, were sold at Target stores nationwide in February and March. They pose a risk to children if ingested, as they can expand inside of children’s bodies and cause intestinal obstructions, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The recalled products can be identified with model numbers 234-25-1200 and 234-09-0016.

    More than 500,000 have been sold nationwide, but no injuries have been reported thus far.

    The toys can cause vomiting, dehydration, severe discomfort and potentially be life threatening. If one of the toys is ingested, it must be removed with surgery, and the toys may not show up on an X-ray, the CPSC said.
