Two deaths linked to the toy gun have been reported, with the cause of death stated as asphyxiation. A 9-year-old boy in Chicago and a 10-year-old boy in Milwaukee both died after inhaling the toy dart into their throats.
Family Dollar is working with officials to spread the word about this dangerous toy.
If a child places the soft, pliable plastic toy dart in his/her mouth, the toy can be inhaled into the throat and prevent the child from breathing.
