More Toy Recalls

   Millions of toys are being pulled off of shelves following two major recalls. 
   The first recall involves toys called aqua dots. They contain a chemical that breaks down into the powerful "date rape'' drug GHB when ingested. 
   When eaten, the compound can cause unconsciousness, seizures, drowsiness, coma and death. Two children in the U.S. and three in Australia had to be hospitalized. The beads are sold in general merchandise stores and over the
internet.

    In a separate recall, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says more than 405,000 children's products made in China contain dangerous levels of lead. 
    The recall includes pull-back action toy cars imported by Dollar General, dragster and funny car toys imported by International Sourcing and "Big Red'' wagons
imported by Northern Tool and Equipment. 

    Also recalled: four products from Schylling Associates. They are Duck Family Collectable Wind- Up Toy, Dizzy Ducks Music Box, Robot 2000 Collectable Tin Robot, and Winnie-The-Pooh Spinning Top.
    No illnesses have been connected to these recalls at this time.
