4. Doodlebutt Jelly BeadZ Jumbo BeadZ and Magic Growing Fruity Fun water-absorbing polymer toys sold between February 2012 through September 2013 on Amazon.com have been recalled due to an ingestion hazard.

These soft and colorful products can be mistaken by a child for candy. When swallowed, they can expand inside a child's body and cause intestinal obstructions, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration and could be life threatening. The toys can absorb from 300 to 500 times their weight in water and can grow up to eight times their original size. Similar toys have not shown up on x-rays and needed surgery to be removed from the body.

Jumbo Jelly BeadZ toys are marble-sized water-absorbing balls. They were sold in a package consisting of three separate bags. Each bag had eight to 12 water balls of slightly different sizes. The balls came in clear, blue, red, orange, yellow, green and purple colors.

Magic Growing Fruity Fun toys are water-absorbing polymers in the shapes of apples, bananas, butterflies, cherries, grapes, pineapples, roses and strawberries. The label on the front of the bag has the words "Jelly BeadZ," "Bouncy and Beautiful," "Colorfast," "Non Toxic," "Safe for the Environment," and other words that describe uses for the product. The back of the package has a barcode with "XU00EC1JRN" beneath it.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled polymer products and contact Doodlebutt for a full refund. Doodlebutt can be reached at (239) 313-9779 or at e-mail whitmana@live.com.

5. Hobby Lobby Accent chairs sold nationwide from March 2013 to August 2013 have been recalled due to a risk of injury because the front legs on the chair can loosen and detach.

This recall involves black wooden accent chairs with a shaped wood top rail and center back splat. The chairs have a black and white chevron print seat cushion. Item number 5218300 and PO number 9099294 are printed on the chair's hang tag and a tag affixed to the underside of the chair.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chair and return it to the nearest Hobby Lobby store. Hobby Lobby Stores can be contacted at (800) 326-7931 or visit the firm's web site at www.hobbylobby.com, and click on the "Recall" tab at the bottom.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to a product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. Please describe about your experience with the product on SaferProducts.gov.
