Halting My Hunt For Zhu Zhu Pet Hamsters ? Recall To Come, Christmas Around The World

So my husband informed me this morning that the Zhu Zhu Pet hamsters, that I have been hunting for forever, are probably going to be recalled due to them being toxic. A consumer watch group did some testing, and found they have tin, and some cancer forming agent in them. They only tested the hamsters, to my knowledge. Unfortunately for all of us who purchased on Ebay, I don't think the recall will be honored with a refund. Don't quote me on that, but I don't see how it could be possible. Meaning everyone who spent 50 dollars, or more, on a toy hamster, will probably see no refund. I only got an accessory, and paid 30 bucks for it, so I will most likely be out that, but it was the original price, not an inflated price. For now I will have to watch, and see what happens, but as of right now I am halting my search for a Zhu Zhu pet hamster. In case you are wondering these are the results I found on CNN, when I looked for articles on this subject, read, and weep for yourself.

Either these things haven't hit Canada, or I'm living under a rock, since I've never seen one or even seen a commercial for one. They look cute, but somewhat useless.

But should you really be concerned if the danger is with ingestion at high levels? I mean, your kids aren't going to be eating them by the dozen.

I agree, and have always said unless your child is eating them is it really a big deal. My point is, if there is a recall, I won't have to worry about trying to get one anymore, because they will be recalled.

Rochelle, you are lucky they are not there, they are a pain to find.

Wiggy, maybe they are only popular here, but I believe they are referred to as go go pets, in the UK. Thanks for helping DJ out, much appreciated.
