Risk
The product poses a risk of choking and injuries because magnets in the small flexible parts of the animals, vehicles and building sets can be detached. 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. Two accidents reported in the United States.
