Target is recalling some Easter toys that could be life-threatening if swallowed by a child.

The recall includes the Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino. Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs and Easter Grow toys have model number 234-25-1200 on the back of the product’s packaging. Hatch Your Own Dino Egg has model number 234-09-0016 on the label inserted in the product’s packaging.

They were sold in the $1 section at Target stores nationwide.

The toys “grow” by absorbing water. If one is ingested, it could expand inside a child’s body and cause intestinal obstructions. That could cause stomach pain, vomiting, dehydration and could even cause complications that could lead to death.

There is a possibility that the toys might not show up on an X-ray- and surgery would be required to remove the toy from the body.

If you have purchased one of the toys, return it to Target for a full refund.
