RECALL: Dunecraft Recalls Water Balz, Skulls, Orbs and Flower Toys Due to Serious Ingestion Hazard

Dunecraft has recalled its Water Balz, Growing Skulls, H2O Orbs “Despicable Me,” and Fabulous Flowers toys. When the marble-sized toy is ingested, it expands up to 400 times its original size inside the body and causes a blockage in the small intestine, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting, and dehydration. These injuries could be life threatening. The toys do not show up on an x-ray and require surgery to be removed from the body.

For questions regarding this recall, contact Dunecraft at (800) 306-4168, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or online at www.dunecraft.com and click on the recall tab for more information. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is also interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product.

Recall: UJ Trading Knight Hawk Toy Helicopters

UJ Trading in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), has recalled approximately 18,500 Danbar Knight Hawk Toy Helicopters due to a fire hazard. RadioShack previously recalled the helicopters in January, due to one fire report.

The battery housing under the canopy of the remote-control helicopters can overheat while charging, leading to a potential fire. UJ Trading has reported no injuries.

The recalled units can be identified by the model number 006047 marked on the back of the controller and the Knight Hawk logo located on the front of the controller. The body of the helicopter also contains the markings: AH-64 and helicopter.

Consumers should immediately take the helicopter away from children and contact UJ Trading to obtain a full refund. UJ Trading will provide a paid postage label to return the recalled product.

Consumers with incident or injuries reports are asked to contact the CPSC by visiting www.saferproducts.gov.
