Before you add Zhu Zhu pets to your holiday shopping list, buyer beware! Consumer Group, Good Guide is saying that Zhu Zhu hamsters, which have been a very high in demand holiday gift this year for kids, actually contain harmful levels of antimony.
Antimony is a toxic substance which can irritate your eyes and lungs, cause heart an dung problems, stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach ulcers. But despite this warning from Good Guide, Cepia, the manufacturer behind the Zhu Zhu hamsters claims that their toys are safe and that they have been thoroughly tested.
Regardless, until the facts are clear, we recommend keeping your child away from these rodents.
