Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC) and Be Amazing! Toys have jointly recalled the Monster Science and Super Star Science Colossal Water Balls (Water-absorbing Polymer Balls) by Be Amazing! Toys with the following model numbers: #7255 and #7704.

If swallowed, the toy can expand, causing a blockage in the small intestine, which could lead to severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration. Although the toys may not show up on an X-ray, ingesting a ball could be life threatening.

While there have been no reported incidents in Canada, in the U.S. a similar product was ingested and needed to be surgically removed from an 8-month-old's stomach.

Customers are advised to remove the toy immediately and contact Be Amazing! Toys toll-free at 1-877-798-9795 or direct 1-301-895-4531, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday for a refund. Alternately, customers may visit the company's website for more information.

From September 2010 to present (in Canada), approximately 1,200 of the balls have been sold in Canada, and about 14,200 in the U.S.
