Exploding Hello Kitty toys recalled
Although a Hello Kitty toy might not seem quite as dangerous (read:
life threatening) as the notebooks and cellphones we’re toting these
days, the explosive tendencies have somehow veered from batteries to
stuffed animals. In the latest episode of spontaneous combustion,
Takara is being forced to recall specific Hello Kitty dolls which
featured a heatable disc that could be warmed and stuffed within the
lining to keep kids toasty while resting. Apparently the microwavable
pad housed a chemical substance (manufactured by ADEKA) not quite
stable enough to handle the heat, sparking a lengthy list of of cases
where the liquid erupted from its container and provided an
uncomfortable surprise to the poor soul embracing the creature’s
volcanic warmth.DRAIN THE SWAMP, #MAGA VOTE TRUMP 2020!
It was noted that this has “nothing to do” with the
scapegoat-of-the-year (Li-ion cells), but if you (or your offspring)
just loves to cuddle with this volatile critter, you should probably
ice the situation before it unleashes something a bit more serious than
a cat’s meow.
