WASHINGTON, D.C. (WDKY) — The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled two brands of water beads sold on Amazon, urging customers to stop using them immediately.

“The large water beads contain levels of acrylamide in violation of the Federal Hazardous Substances Act. If one of these large water beads is ingested, it can pose a risk of toxicity to children, causing adverse health effects,” the CPSC said.

There have been three instances where children required surgery to remove a large water bead after ingesting it.

“Ingested water beads can grow inside the body. This can cause severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration, intestinal blockages, or life-threatening injuries that can require surgery to remove the water beads,” the CPSP said.
