Toy Recall Has Local Shoppers Rethinking Christmas Gifts

The latest toy recall has parents across Eastern Carolina rethinking what they might buy for gifts this holiday season.

Aqua Dots was taken off the shelves Wednesday night and returned boxes were in plain view on store counters. At the New Bern Walmart, many customers told us they were skeptical about toys currently being manufactured overseas. Although shopper Michelle Stout's daughter came out with a toy cookie monster, she and many other shoppers are switching it up this Christmas.

Aqua Dots, which is made in China, were recalled because a coating used to make the toy can be fatal if ingested. We're told that the coating contains the date rape drug GHB.
