Product Recall: Flashing eyeball toys

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Toys

Not only are these eyeball toys gross, they are also dangerous. For some reason, the makers of the Flashing Evil Eye toys thought filling them with kerosene was a good idea. Clearly, it was not.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, along with Gemmy Industries, has announced a recall of these Flashing Evil Eye toys due to the chemical hazard posed to children should the eyeball break.

About 500 of these pairs of eyeballs were sold at toy and novelty stores during July 2006 for about $3. The model numbers, which can be found on the back of the packaging, are: 27828, 27544 and 06470.

If you have these eyeballs, you are advised to immediately take them away from your child and return them to the store for a full refund.

For more information, contact Gemmy Industries at (800) 231-6879 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, visit their Web site, or email them at at
