WOW! What next? Besides the dog/cat food recalls I have posted that one needs to be careful of painted dog/cat bowls and toys especially from China as the paints in them carry large amounts of lead just the like kids toys did. I still have a stocking of toys in the laundry room from xmas made in China to afraid to give them to my babies. I guess I better toss them to be safe as they are not going to get them anyway.

I don't believe I've ever seen a pimple ball, but I thank you for the info. Thank goodness my lab's a tennis ball lover. What a horrible thing to happen to that poor dog.

there are rubber ones and plastic. There are no other holes, that is the reason for the vaccum effect.
I think I will be using tennis balls and other toys without a hole in from now on, to keep any risks at bay.
