If two or more magnets are swallowed, they can stick together across intestines causing serious infections or death. Consumers may not be alerted to this risk due to the lack of mandatory warning labels on some of the products.

What should consumers do?

Customers should familiarise themselves with the hazards of these magnets and ensure there is adequate supervision of children using the sets. Alternatively, customers concerned about the safety of the sets that don't have the required warning label may return them to the place of purchase and request a refund by contacting Mont Marte International directly on (07) 3255 4406 or at Sales@montmarte.net
