A major recall of Chinese made toys is underway. This time the Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls 4.2 million of the hot selling Aqua Dots.

Aqua Dots have apparently a toxic chemical inside and when swallowed triggers effects from the so called date-rape drug gamma hydroxy butyrate. The effects include seizures, coma, or even death.
So far there have been no deaths linked to Aqua Dots.

The Aqua Dots in question have been sold between April and November at major retailers like Wal-mart and Toys'R's.
