Aqua Dots Coated with Deadly Chemicals

When American capital decided to turn its back on the American production worker by shipping manufacturing jobs to China, they probably didn't suspect that their greed would lead so quickly to toxic toys and antifreeze toothpaste on American store shelves.

What kind of health disaster will be required before our government steps in to protect citizens? What other poisons are we ingesting from the thousands of imported toxic products because our corporate socialist system is too corrupt to do anything about it?

From Raw Story:

. . . . Though anticipated to be among the holiday's biggest-selling toys, Aqua Dots were recalled in the United States on Nov. 7 after tests showed they are coated with an industrial chemical that, when ingested, metabolizes into the "date-rape" drug gamma hydroxy butyrate.

The bead-like toy could cause breathing problems, loss of consciousness, seizures, drowsiness, coma and death if ingested. Nine children in the United States and three children in Australia have become sick.

Aqua Dots was heavily advertised in holiday fliers because of the toy's popularity, said Waugh. The Toys "R" Us circular distributed Sunday advertised the beads with a photo on page 2 under the heading "Girls Gift Sale."
