Description of what happened:
My 8-year-old son was seriously injured while playing with a SPLAT BALL – EGG by Ja-Ru Toys on Saturday, March 12, 2011. We bought the toy around 4:00pm. At around 7:30pm, he was playing with the SPLAT BALL in our living room and began squeezing it back and forth when it burst and the contents of the ball was shot in his face and in his eyes. We flushed his eyes for nearly 3 minutes while he continued to scream for us to take him to the hospital because he couldn’t see. We went to the ER, where he was treated with pain medicine, had several eye exams, and was eventually sedated in order to irrigate his Left eye, which apparently got the worst of the gel contents from the ball. We arrived at the ER around 7:45pm on March 12, 2011 and left around 12:30am on March 13, 2011. His discharge diagnosis was corneal abrasion and chemicals to the eye. We were told to follow-up with the on-call eye doctor on Sunday afternoon, March 13, 2011. At that appointment, he was tested further and it was determined that his vision was effected. We were told to follow-up with our own pediatric eye doctor on Monday, March 14, 2011, where the doctor stated that he has 3 corneal abrasions and a secondary bacterial infection in the left eye caused from the contaminated contents of the gel in the ball. We are giving my son antibiotic eye drops and gel as directed and have a follow-up appointment in 2 weeks to make sure his vision has returned to normal, as it is still effected by the chemicals. Because this toy was so new, we still have all the original packaging and took it with us to the ER and doctor appointments. However, there is no contents listed on the package, which made it difficult for ER staff to know how to treat his injuries. Everyone was unsure what chemicals were in the gel that damaged his eyes. I contacted the Ja-Ru Toy Company this morning to obtain the contents list to take to our follow-up visit. I was SHOCKED at the list of chemicals in this TOY. Most of them have serious warnings of eye irritation, blistering of the eyes and skin, as well as “permanent corneal damage”. How do these chemicals make their way into a toy?????? CONTENTS of this TOY: Material breakdown for item # 5301 Splat Ball: EGG STYLE: WATER / WHITE OIL / GLYCEROL / SEBS/ PHENOXYETHANOL / DIAZOLIDINYL UREA / BRONOPOL / COLOR / SODIUM LAURETH SULPHATE Please check into this for an IMMEDIATE RECALL. This accident has caused serious damage to my son’s eye and the trauma from the event is beyond words. My son has sensory processing disorder, so he is hypersensitive to smell, touch, sound, and pain. It was pure torture for him to undergo this eye irrigation and other necessary eye exams.
