AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you have an Easter basket in your house, make sure to check it for a recalled item that could be dangerous for kids.

On Thursday, Thursday, Target issued a recall for the Hatch & Grow Easter and Dino toys. When placed in water, the product grows to 600 times its original size.

The company says if the small toy is ingested, it can expand inside a child’s body and cause intestinal obstructions that can result in severe discomfort, vomiting, and dehydration.

The items were sold in Target stores nationwide from February 2017 through March 2017 for about $1.
