WASHINGTON - Millions of Chinese-made children's toys have been pulled from shelves in North America and Australia after scientists found it contained a chemical that converts into a powerful "date rape" drug when ingested.

Two children in the U.S. and three in Australia were hospitalized after swallowing the beads. In the United States, the toy goes by the name Aqua Dots, which are distributed by Spin Master Toys based in Toronto.

The beads are sold in general merchandise stores for use in arts and crafts projects. They can be arranged into designs and fuse together when sprayed with water.


Scientists say the beads contain a chemical that the human body metabolizes into the so-called date rape drug Gamma-Hydroxybutyrate. When eaten, the compound — made from common and easily available ingredients — can induce unconsciousness, seizures, drowsiness, coma and death.

The recall was announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission on Friday several hours after it was announced in Australia.

Hi Wabit - just dropping in before bedtime to say hello, and to say your family have really deserved the thanks today. My granddad served in WW1 and Dad in WW2, like yours, except I have no brothers!
Day served in the far east until 1947, but the sad thing is, that today, he does not know he did and cannot remember anything:)

Hey Wabit,

Just wanted to stop by and say Hi and Thank You to you and your family as some of our Veterans. Many of the men in my family have served over the generations also, got some nephews out there now.


Our weather is just beautiful yesterday and today. This is nice; what we put up with hot humid summers for LOL... I just still wish we could get a lot more rain over Lake o and the glades.


Hope you are enjoying your Day!
