A couple of days ahead of the Easter holiday, Target has recalled some of their toys due to some very serious concerns.

More than half a million Easter toys have been recalled by Target over fear that if these water absorbing toys are ingested, they could block a child's stomach and would have to be surgically removed.

NBC News said the CPSC (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) has issued a FAST TRACK RECALL for:

Consumers who purchased one of the items should immediately return it to any Target store for a full refund, call Target's customer service number at 800-910-6874.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the toys can expand in a child’s body after being swallowed, causing intestinal obstructions that could be life-threatening.
