Toy Company Sued for Recalled Aqua Dots

Eddie and Summer Gerrald have filed a lawsuit against toy distributors Target Corporation and Spin Master Inc. This came about after their 1-year-old son became ill from swallowing a recalled toy that produces the date rapedrug when ingested. Aqua Dots is a craft toy kit that contains small, colored liquid-filled beads that when sprayed with water become adhesive and fuse together in a plastic tray. In November 2007 and in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Spin Master recalled 4.2 million Aqua Dots sets. According to the complaint, this toxin can cause "depression of the central nervous system, respiratory depression, unconsciousness, seizures, comas, and even death." The parents state that since ingestion, the toddler continues to suffer from sleeplessness, fevers and vomiting.
