Recalled 226pcs 5mm (0.2 inch) Magnetic Stones Toy Creativity Development DIY Magnetic Beads

Potential Risks or Issues

The recalled 5mm magnetic ball sets violate the mandatory federal toy magnet regulation because they contain one or more magnets that fit within CPSC’s small parts cylinder, and the magnets are stronger than permitted. When high-powered magnets are swallowed, the ingested magnets can attract to each other, or another metal object, and become lodged in the digestive system. This can result in perforations, twisting and/or blockage of the intestines, infection, blood poisoning, and death.

Has Anyone Been Injured?

None reported. However, the CPSC estimates that 2,400 magnet ingestions were treated in hospital emergency departments from 2017 through 2021. The CPSC is aware of seven deaths since 2005 involving the ingestion of hazardous magnets, including two outside of the United States.
