Reasons the product is recalled

The product includes very strong magnets that should be kept at least 16 cm apart. They can forcefully attract, break, splinter and emit sparks if they come together. If pulled apart, broken pieces may eject with force.

The hazards to consumers

The sneaker display’s magnets can forcefully attract, break, splinter and emit sparks, posing a laceration hazard.

In addition, when two or more high-powered magnets are swallowed, either accidentally or intentionally, the ingested magnets can attract each other and become lodged in the digestive system. This can lead to perforations, twisting and/or blockage of the intestines that can lead to infection and death.

Injuries have occurred in Australia and the USA.

What consumers should do

Consumers should stop using the product and keep the magnets at least 16 cm apart from each other at all times. If the magnets come together consumers should not attempt to separate them.

Consumers will be entitled to a full refund. Culture Kings will publish details regarding how to register for a refund. Consumers may also contact Culture Kings on the email address below for further information about the recall and the refund process.
