TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- A toy recalled because it contained a dangerous chemical is appearing for sale in circulars distributed in Sunday newspapers.

Aqua Dots were pulled from shelves nearly three weeks ago. The toy beads were coated in a chemical that can turn into the "date-rape" drug when swallowed. But circulars for Toys "R" Us and Target feature Aqua Dots for sale.

Toys "R" Us says Aqua Dots are not actually for sale. A spokeswoman for the company says they may appear in newspapers for another week or two because the circulars are printed and distributed far in advance.
