MEGA Brands Recalls Magnetic Toys; Ingested Magnets Pose Aspiration and Intestinal Hazards

2008-05-01 アップロード · 45 視聴

MEGA Brands, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, is recalling about 2.4 million MagnaMan Magnetic Toy Figures, and Magtastik and Magnetix Jr. Pre-school Magnetic Toys. Magnets in the toy figures, animals, and building sets can detach. Magnets found by young children can be swallowed or aspirated. If more than one magnet is swallowed, the magnets can attract each other and cause intestinal perforations or blockages, which can be fatal.

MEGA Brands and CPSC have received 44 reports of magnets coming loose from the toys including one report of a child who was found with a magnet in his mouth and another report of a 3-year-old boy receiving medical treatment to remove a magnet from his nasal cavity.

For more information, or to request interviews, call the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission at (301) 504-7908.
