TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The popular but dangerous toy Aqua Dots was recalled, but the fliers advertising it apparently were not.

A Toys "R" Us flier distributed in some Sunday newspapers contains an ad for Aqua Dots, the popular toy beads yanked from U.S. store shelves nearly three weeks ago because they are coated in a chemical that can turn into the "date-rape" drug when swallowed.

I saw the Aqua Dots in the Target and Walmart circulars as well. My kids had put a sicker next to it in the Walmart ad showing that they wanted it too! Kind of scary because I probably would have bought it.

Thanks for the article.
