Toy Recall - HOLY CRAP
By Alan Hargreaves-Oracle on Nov 06, 2007
I just had my dad call me to tell me about this toy recall.
The toy (Bindeez Craft Beads) won the Australian Toy of the year award! Now they find that
"The colourful beads contain the same chemical as the illicit drug GHB, otherwise known as 'fantasy' [...] the product actually contains 1,4-butanediol [...] When metabolised, 1,4-butanediol converts into GHB."
My (almost) 9 year old daughter loves playing with these things!!!
Sometimes as a parent I have the absolute sh\*t scared out of me.
I will be packing these up to be returned as soon as I get home!
