the IT city, the I.T. Baby


Jumbo Size and Jumbo Multipurpose Cosmo Beads recall

Cosmo BeadsIn another one of the dumb products being recalled of the day, some more toys that look like jelly beans and expand and can block intestines. Yup, grows up to 600 times, looks like candy, and doesn’t show up on an X-ray. Great. Cosmo Beads recall for the win today.

Details of the recall are here. I’ve got a poopy baby to handle tonight so not going to really get on a rant about these other than to say if you don’t know that something the size of a jelly bean is going to be eaten by any baby within arms reach and things that expand multiple times when exposed to water are going to block up kids innards, you shouldn’t be buying toys.
