Reasons the product is recalled
The magnet-lined closures of these products can fail and may cause the magnets to be released from the closure.
The hazards to consumers
If more than one small high-powered magnet is swallowed, the ingested magnets can stick together across the walls of the intestine or other digestive tissue, which can lead to serious internal injuries and even death. The magnets may pose a choking hazard to young children (small parts).
