Date Rape Drug Found in Children Toys

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) _ A toy recalled because it contained a dangerous chemical is appearing for sale in circulars distributed in Sunday newspapers.

Aqua Dots were pulled from shelves nearly three weeks ago.

The toy beads were coated in a chemical that can turn into the "date-rape'' drug when swallowed.

But circulars for Toys "R'' Us and Target feature Aqua Dots for sale.

Toys ''R'' Us says Aqua Dots are not actually for sale.

A spokeswoman for the company says they may appear in newspapers for another week or two because the circulars are printed and distributed far in advance.

Nine children in the United States and three in Australia have
gotten sick.
