Button Batteries Lead to Recall of Children’s Toys

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently recalled over 1 million light-up children’s eyeglasses and rings, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. The toys, which were distributed by Chuck E. Cheese restaurants, were recalled because the small batteries inside may cause severe internal injuries if swallowed.

The small batteries, known as “button batteries” due to their shape and size, are causing more and more children to be admitted to the hospital for swallowing them. Although the CPSC has received few reports about severe injuries, ten children were admitted to a Utah hospital recently after swallowing the batteries, and one of the children suffered severe digestive-tract damage.
