About 500 High-Powered Magnet desk toys have been recalled by Reiss Innovations LLC, of Manchester, Conn. When two or more magnets are swallowed, they can link together inside a child’s intestines and clamp onto body tissues, causing intestinal obstructions, perforations, sepsis and death. Internal injury from magnets can pose serious lifelong health effects.
This recall involves high-powered magnet sets sold under the DynoCube.com brand name for use as a novelty item or desk toy. Each set contains 216 small, silver-colored, spherical magnets that are approximately 5 millimeters in diameter. Reiss Innovations has received no reports of incidents or injuries.
