NOTE: This only affects Australia and New Zealand, but it is noteworthy to keep people aware of the apparently increasing dangers of Chinese made products. This is obviously NOT going to get any American coverage.
Bindeez is Australia's "Toy Of The Year". It is a really neat little package of beads that stick together when touched by a water dropper. Kids use it to make all kinds of colorful craft toys.
Unfortunately the Chinese Manufacture secretly change the formula for making the beads so that when a child - or anyone else - eats one it turns into the illegal drug known as Ecstasy.

A few kids have been hospitalized.
