CASE ALERT: High-Powered Magnets Recalled for Risk of Severe
Internal Injury or Death in Children and Teens
The attorneys at ASK LLP are investigating claims that toy magnets sold under the names Zen Magnets and Neoballs accidentally ingested by children may be causing serious internal injuries, some requiring major surgery.
What We Know About the Recall
On August 17, 2021, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a recall of 10 million Zen Magnets and Neoballs. The recall announcement outlines the risk associated with the magnets: “When two or more high-powered magnets are swallowed, either accidentally or intentionally, the ingested magnets can attract to each other, or to another metal object, and become lodged in the digestive system.”
According to the recall notice, Zen Magnets has received at least 2 reports of children requiring surgery to remove the magnets and parts of their intestines and bowels after ingesting the magnets. The CPSC is also aware of other reports of children and teens swallowing high-powered magnets and requiring surgery to remove them. A 19-month-old child died after ingesting similar magnets.
Ingesting these high-powered magnets can cause serious internal injuries, including:
- Intestinal perforations
- Twisting and/or blockage of the intestines
- Blood poisoning
