What are the defects?

The product contains small, high-powered magnets. The product exceeds the maximum allowable magnetic flux index set by the permanent ban on certain small, high powered magnets, prescribed in Consumer Protection Notice No 5 of 2012 'Imposition of permanent ban on small, high powered magnets'.

What are the hazards?

If a child swallows more than one small high powered magnet, the magnets can stick together across the walls of the child's intestine or other digestive tissue, which can lead to internal injuries and even death. The magnets may pose a choking hazard to young children (small parts).
