Target Corp. on Thursday issued a voluntarily recall of several potentially hazardous products. The recall includes toys Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs, Easter Grow Toys and Hatch Your Own Dino. A manager at one Target store told Patch that customers should bring the toys to guest services for a refund.

The toys were sold at Target stores across the United States from February 2017 through March 2017 for about $1. Consumers should immediately take this recalled toy away from children and return it to any Target store for a full refund.

If any of the small toys are ingested, they can expand inside a child's body and cause intestinal obstructions, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting and dehydration, and the symptoms could be life-threatening, a report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission states. Surgery is required to remove the toy from the body, if ingested, according to a news release. Medical professionals and parents should be aware that there is a possibility that the toys might not show up on an X-ray.

The 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.

The pink, blue or purple Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs include a white bunny, brown bunny or butterfly. The Easter Grow Toys include a yellow chick, brown bunny or white bunny. The Hatch Your Own Dino Eggs are purple or yellow/green and contains one of 11 dinosaurs.
