The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced the voluntary recall of all Buckyballs and Buckycubes high-powered magnet sets. These products contain defects in the design, warnings and instructions, which pose a substantial risk of injury and death to children and teenagers.
The magnet sets were imported by Maxfield & Oberton LLC, of New York, N.Y. The CPSC filed an administrative complaint against the manufacturers of these magnets in July 2012; however, the manufacturer never issued a recall for the products, allowing many more sets to be sold. The company has since gone out of business.
Buckyballs and Buckycubes consist of sets of numerous, small, high-powered magnets. These sets vary in the number of magnets included and come in a variety of colors. Individual magnets in the set are about 5 millimeters in diameter. Individual magnets in Buckyballs are spherical and individual magnets in Buckycubes are cube-shaped.
According to the report issued by the CPSC, a 2012 survey of U.S. pediatric gastroenterologists reported 480 cases of children ingesting magnets in the last 10 years, with almost half of those cases reported in the last year. Swallowed magnets can cause serious illness and intestinal problems. The swallowed magnets can attach to one another inside the body, trapping soft tissue in between and possibly leading to holes in the stomach lining.
The CPSC strongly urges consumers should take the high-powered magnet sets and all associated individual magnets away from children and teenagers and contact the retailer from which they purchased the product to obtain instructions for their remedy. The six retailers who are working with the CPSC in the recall are Barnes & Noble, Bed Bath & Beyond, Brookstone, ThinkGeek, Marbles the Brain Store and participating Hallmark retailers.
