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).

Customers should immediately stop using their YETI tote cooler, backpack cooler and gear case, and go to for more details.  Customers may choose to return their product to their place of purchase for a refund or credit note, or directly to YETI for a cash refund or gift card with additional value.
