The company Be Amazing! Toys is recalling Monster Science Spiders due to a serious ingestion hazard.

The soft and colorful, toy spider can be mistaken by a child for candy.

When the marble-sized product is ingested, it can expand inside a child’s body and cause intestinal obstructions.

The toys do not show up on an X-ray and need surgery to be removed from body.

Though there haven’t been any reports on this particular item, there is one incident in which an 8-month-old girl ingested a similar product.

Consumers should immediately take this recalled toy away from children and contact the company for a refund.
